Reaching More in Need: PMTCT Enhancement through Expanded Implementation and Operations Research (The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded this project which was designed to expand access to prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services in 10 countries including Tanzania, which allowed EGPAF to fill critical gaps, ensure continued service delivery in resource-limited countries, and leverage other donor resources to increase access to PMTCT services. Through this project, EGPAF:
- Provided support and technical assistance to host country governments to strengthen commitment to scale up PMTCT services;
- Trained thousands of government personnel at the site, district, and provincial levels to build health care worker capacity to provide HIV services;
- Strengthened integration with other essential services;
- Improved linkages to care and treatment.
