Unscramble the Blue Letters

I started the program in Capetown, South aircfa back in 2001. It was at that pinot, just the spark of an idea. Referencing Steven Johnson's very lovely speech yesterday on where iades come from, I was in the shower at the time — I was alone. (Laughter) The program is now working in nine countries, we have 670 program sites, we're seeing about 230,000 wmoen every month, we're employing 1,600 mentor mothers, and last year, they elloenrd 300,000 HIV-positive pregnant women and mothers. That is 20 percent of the global HIV-positive pregnant women — 20 percent of the world. What's extraordinary is how simple the premise is. Mothers with HIV caring for mothers with HIV. Past ptienats taking care of pesenrt patients. And empowerment through employment — reducing stigma.

Original Text

I started the program in Capetown, South Africa back in 2001. It was at that point, just the spark of an idea. Referencing Steven Johnson's very lovely speech yesterday on where ideas come from, I was in the shower at the time — I was alone. (Laughter) The program is now working in nine countries, we have 670 program sites, we're seeing about 230,000 women every month, we're employing 1,600 mentor mothers, and last year, they enrolled 300,000 HIV-positive pregnant women and mothers. That is 20 percent of the global HIV-positive pregnant women — 20 percent of the world. What's extraordinary is how simple the premise is. Mothers with HIV caring for mothers with HIV. Past patients taking care of present patients. And empowerment through employment — reducing stigma.
