This project, which is part of the renewed Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative (CHVI), aims to improve country progress towards the elimination of pediatric HIV by identifying community-based interventions with the most potential to scale up prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and maternal-newborn-child health (MNCH) services in sub-Saharan Africa. These interventions aim to increase demand, uptake and retention of services. The focus on PMTCT under CHVI addresses the immediate prevention needs of those most at risk while researchers pursue a safe and effective vaccine.
