This is a comprehensive, evidence-based course for the prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) and was written for implementation in resource-constrained settings. The package provides a context for reviewing existing materials (policies, procedures, and curricula) in light of current science and evidence-based practice. It also provides a framework for updating existing policy, developing materials where needed, and considering the implications of implementing PMTCT services in a range of clinical settings. The process of adapting the curriculum for country use facilitates stakeholder input. This curriculum also provides a mechanism for developing and sustaining human capacity building for PMTCT programmes.

The purpose of the generic training package is to provide:

An overview of the fundamental principles of a sustainable PMTCT programme.

Healthcare workers with the knowledge and skills to deliver basic PMTCT services.

Flexibility for integrating country-specific PMTCT policies and procedures

It has been adapted in workshops - Caribbean, Kenya, Africa etc. www.womenchildrenhiv.org/wchiv?page=gtp-05-00

There have been adaptations of it for specific countries e.g. Botswana, Kenya, Guyana, Ethiopia and adaptation tools are available on line: www.womenchildrenhiv.org/wchiv?page=gtp-02-00

Note: The 2006 Consensus statement came out after the production of these training materials. The consensus statement should be read along with this material. 

A mechanism for human capacity-building to support PMTCT service delivery programmes.
