Call to Action (USAID/PEPFAR)
Through funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), EGPAF implemented the eight‐year global Call to Action (CTA) project in 12 countries around the world, including Zambia (from 2003 through 2007). This project sought to improve access and expand care and support for quality PMTCT services, while enhancing technical leadership and documenting successful program models. By project end, EGPAF had provided nearly four million women with access to PMTCT and antenatal care services. In Zambia, EGPAF helped expand PMTCT services to sites in rural provinces, and together with our partners supported nearly 300 PMTCT sites in Western, Eastern, and Lusaka Provinces.
