Onsite training for Health Care Workers in Thaba Tseka District on the New National PMTCT Guidelines (Option B+) (UNICEF)
In April 2013, Lesotho’s MOH initiated a policy change to support the implementation of lifelong ART for all HIV-positive pregnant women nationwide (Option B+). To improve quality service delivery of PMTCT Option B+ in the district of Thaba Tseka, EGPAF provided onsite training to 183 healthcare workers from August-September 2013. One hundred women at these health facilities were initiated on ART during the two months after the training (with six women declining). In the two months before the training, 52 women were initiated on ART (with 18 declining) at the same health facilities.
