90% of HIV-positive children in the Ohangwena Region have their viral load suppressed to the extent that the virus is no longer detectable.

The United States Agency for International Development in Namibia says levels of viral load in nine out of 10 children with the virus are below detection levels.

This is reassuring news for parents and caregivers, which is attributed to general strict adherence to ARV therapy and other support services provided by Project Hope's Namibia Adherence and Retention Project.
