Since partnering with ViiV Healthcare we have been working together on a number of initiatives.
- Training health workers in countries such as Malawi, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
- Policy analyses to assess political barriers that restrict access to treatment for infants and young children. The results can be used to develop advocacy strategies to remove these barriers.
- Research into the proportion of young children infected, the proportion receiving HIV test results and the proportion treated. Results highlight the gaps and frequently show that an HIV test is performed but that the results do not get back to the health worker or the infant’s family or caregivers. Country programmes can be adapted to close the identified gaps, using innovative new approaches.
