Description and results


This project aims to improve global, regional and country progress towards the elimination of HIV infection in mothers and children by supporting the Secretariat of the Interagency Task Team on the Prevention and Treatment of HIV Infection in Pregnant Women, Mothers and Children (IATT on PMTCT). The IATT on PMTCT is an inter-agency technical partnership coordinated by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, which aims to improve accountability and increase the use of evidence to support the country-led implementation of the Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections Among Children by 2015 and Keeping their Mothers Alive. This project builds on the results of previous support from Canada towards the IATT on PMTCT for 2012-2014. It assists the IATT Secretariat in carrying out three distinct activities: (1) the management and hosting of virtual learning platforms, including a comprehensive prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV website, webinar series, and virtual discussions; (2) documenting best practices on the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, publishing implementation science findings, and updating and disseminating key tools and guidance; and (3) providing in-country technical assistance through IATT working groups and IATT country focal points in line with country needs. This support contributes to DFATD's broader efforts of reducing infant mortality and maternal deaths.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced reach and implementation of prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) research, tools and guidance; (2) increased documentation of best practices in PMTCT; (3) enhanced engagement and south-south learning across the priority countries as well as other regions; and (4) improved global, regional and country accountability on PMTCT.
