Advancing Community-Level Action for Improving Maternal and Child Health and Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (ACCLAIM)
ACCLAIM seeks to increase community demand for, uptake of, and retention in MNCH and PMTCT services. The project is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and is being implemented in Uganda, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe over four years. ACCLAIM’s goal is to increase engagement in MNCH and PMTCT among men and women through community-based interventions. This project focuses on operations research to better understand communities perceptions and behaviors around PMTCT and aims to use this research to change HIV, MNCH, and gender-related health behaviors through community-based interventions that shift community norms and attitudes toward healthy behaviors.
