Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) of HIV Resources

The “Improving Retention, Adherence and Psychosocial Support within PMTCT Services: A Toolkit for Health Workers” is a resource recently developed by ICAP for adaptation in sub-Saharan Africa. The materials in this Toolkit are designed to aid multidisciplinary care teams in providing women, families, and babies with increased support for retention, adherence, and psychosocial wellbeing throughout the continuum of PMTCT care. The materials are intended to improve the knowledge, skills, and confidence of a range of professional and lay health workers within PMTCT programs, thus enhancing the scope and quality of services available to PMTCT clients and their families. In addition, the forms and guides included in the Toolkit are intended to support the development of the systems needed to successfully improve retention, adherence, and psychosocial wellbeing among all PMTCT clients. All of the materials included in the Toolkit are generic in form, and thus allow Ministries of Health, provincial and district authorities, health facilities and health workers, and implementing partners to adapt the content to suit specific programmatic and policy contexts.
