Strengthening systems to retain mother-baby pairs in care, eliminate mother-to-child HIV transmission, and maximize child survival
Wednesday, June 27th, 9:00-10:00 am ET (Washington, D.C.)
The Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS) was a six-country initiative designed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to accelerate country adoption and implementation of the 2010 WHO prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and infant feeding guidelines, with the ultimate goal of eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV and increasing HIV-free survival.
This webinar discussed how to strengthen health systems to retain mother-baby pairs in care, eliminate mother-to-child HIV transmission, and maximize child survival. Speakers will describe key takeaways from how PHFS strengthened information systems, service delivery, governance and leadership to improve care for mothers and their infants in the first two years of life. Inter- and intra-country learning mechanisms will also be discussed.
