Loveletter is a poignant film that depicts both the recent progress and current challenges in Swaziland to eliminate HIV transmission from a mother to her child and to keep mothers alive. Showcasing the tapestry of decisions that are being made, individual stories highlight the importance and value of collective action.
The film is released at a time when increased international attention is focussing on strengthening efforts to prevent â€“ in fact eliminate â€“ the transmission of HIV from a mother to her child and improve maternal health. It demonstrates the perspectives of clients, parents, and health care providers, and explores topics such as male involvement, the role of young people and the unmet need for family planning among women living with HIV.
Swaziland has made great strides in increasing access to health services to prevent mother to child transmission of HIV, and the country has bold plans to build on this success and improve the lives and futures of families through integrated sexual and reproductive health and HIV services. The number of facilities providing related services has increased substantially in recent years. Success has never been more tangible in the everyday lives of people confronting the realities of the epidemic.
