Regional Initiative for the Elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV and CS in LAC: Regional Monitoring Strategy
PAHO and UNICEF are providing countries with strategies and tools to support the Regional Initiative for the Elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV and Congenital Syphilis. This regional monitoring strategy is a companion document to the recommendations provided for the programmatic integration and scale up of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and congenital syphilis and the clinical guidance in support to this programmatic approach.
The current document provides the rationale for establishing a common monitoring strategy and why this framework is needed to track progress of the elimination initiative at regional level. This document is intended for national AIDS and sexually transmitted infection (STI) program managers, maternal and child health program managers, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) specialists in Latin America and the Caribbean.
