unicef Meet Siphiwe Khumalo, 37, and her newborn baby, Lundiwe. Siphiwe was already on life-long antiretroviral treatment when she fell pregnant with Lundiwe. This is her fifth pregnancy - all of her previous babies died shortly after birth. Siphiwe suspects they died of #AIDS-related illnesses, although at that time she didn't know her status. Lundiwe is a happy, healthy baby who’s always smiling, and has tested negatively for #HIV, much to the joy of her mother. #AIDSfree UNICEF/HIVA2015-0010/Schermbrucker 16h

unicef A boy pushes a wheelbarrow filled with jerrycans in Sana’a, #Yemen. Escalating conflict is taking a heavy toll on children and their families. Some 300,000 people have been internally displaced. Casualties have reached 1,527, including 115 children, and 6,266 people have been injured, including 172 children. Prior to the current crisis, 15.9 million people – including 7.9 million children – were already in need of humanitarian assistance. Despite the challenging operating conditions, #UNICEF is scaling up its humanitarian response, including in the areas of nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, health, child protection and education.

unicef Meet Usher, 7, from #GuineaBissau, who’s one of 93 million children worldwide who lives with a disability. Children with disabilities are more likely than their peers to miss out on education - but Usher is thriving at his school, which he attends with 48 other children who don’t have disabilities. Usher’s teacher Antonio has received #UNICEF-supported teacher training on how to foster an inclusive learning environment for children living with disabilities.“I know Usher is capable of succeeding, especially if I keep working with him,” Antonio says. #thisability UNICEF/PFPG2014P-0650/Lynch 22h

unicef A child at the front of a queue of young children mimics the actions of a woman showing him how to wash his hands properly, in a village in #Guinea’s Forécariah Prefecture. #UNICEF-supported social mobilizers are conducting outreach sessions and providing communities in the prefecture with information on key behaviours to protect themselves against #Ebola. UNICEF and partners are also conducting contact tracing to find, isolate and treat individuals who have been in close contact with persons infected with Ebola – a critical part of the response to stop the virus’s spread. #EbolaResponse UNICEF/NYHQ2015-1285/La Rose 2d

unicef Meet newborn Lundiwe. Her mother Siphiwe is #HIV-positive - but thanks to antiretroviral treatment during pregnancy, Lundiwe was born free of the virus. For over two years, UNICEF and @globalfund followed six women living with HIV throughout their pregnancies in South Africa and Malawi, two countries hit very hard by HIV. Watch “A journey of motherhood” on youtube.com/unicef and follow their stories of delivering healthy babies free of HIV. #AIDSfree 4d

unicef Unma Lanan, a volunteer social mobilizer in #Nigeria, stands in the Local Government Area of Dambatta, Kano State. Female mobilizers like Ms. Lanan have greater access to households and have been instrumental in ensuring more children are reached with vaccinations. Nigeria is one of just three countries worldwide where polio remains endemic, but made historic progress towards eradicating the disease - only 6 cases were reported last year. #endpolio #vaccineswork UNICEF/NYHQ2015-0667/Rich 7d
