Join MEASURE Evaluation on September 25 at 8:30am EDT for a one-hour webinar on key implementation successes and recommendations for the elimination of mother-to-child transmission (eMTCT) of HIV. Following MEASURE Evaluation’s assessment of the Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS), we are releasing a comprehensive, user-friendly guide summarizing and sequencing key learnings and practices observed in the six PHFS countries.

PHFS was a multi-country USAID-funded effort aimed at improving nutrition and prevention of maternal-to-child transmission (PMTCT) outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa. Its legacy is that a combination of straightforward activities can be introduced, implemented, and embraced by frontline staff as a way to improve PMTCT service delivery and outcomes. The webinar will share more on the implementation guide and PHFS’s successes.

Register to attend the webinar.
