Stakeholder Review and Update of Materials to Support PMTCT Services in Angola – AIDSFree Report


Since 2013, HIV interventions in Angola to address MTCT and HIV in children have centered on expanding integrated services for antenatal care (ANC) and prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), and on improving the quality of HIV health services. The Government of Angola has sought to align with international norms for PMTCT, including the Millennium Development Goals, and in 2013 began expansion of Option B+, as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The USAID Angola Mission asked AIDSFree to support PMTCT efforts by meeting two objectives: (1) documenting USAID's experiences and compiling the PMTCT materials produced from 2011 through 2015 in Angola and (2) completing the transfer of USAID-produced PMTCT materials to the Government of Angola.

This report details AIDSFree's progress in the second objective. It describes the process of developing the PMTCT Toolkit and the accomplishments and challenges encountered during the development and presentation of the toolkit.
