Community PMTCT & HIV Screening Exercise (IMPACT)
  1. Our Prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) programmes provide antiretroviral treatment (ART) to HIV-positive pregnant women to stop their infants from acquiring the virus.
  2. PMTCT services should also continue after an infant has been born – although this remains a major challenge to programmes – with early infant diagnosis at four to six weeks after birth and ART initiation within the first 12 weeks for HIV-exposed infants.
  3. PMTCT services, where implemented, are effective. Around 1.6 million new HIV infections among children in the world have been prevented as a result of these programmes since 1995.
