Salina could no longer use either arms or legs.
Swallowing was difficult and speech impossible. Add to this tragedy
the positive HIV test in the baby. Caring for Salina and her baby
would be a challenge in any medical center in the world. We took on
that challenge amid the poverty of rural Kenya.
Salina's Living Story
Less than 3% transmission rate from
HIV-positive mother to newborn when enrolled in the Prevention of
Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) program, compared to
30-40% transmission rate for those who are
50 babies can be cared for simultaneously in the Riley Mother & Baby Hospital's Newborn ICU and up to 10,000 deliveries will take place in this hospital each year.
