Moving Evidence into Action series
This implementation starter kit provides access to all the materials used in the Prevention of Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission (PMTCT) component of FHI 360’s Zambia Prevention, Care and Treatment Partnership (ZPCT). The program resulted in a significant increase in the use of PMTCT services as well as significant reductions in the mother-to-child transmission of HIV among ZPCT clinic clients. It now serves as a model for other countries. This kit is designed to be used by program designers to replicate the success of the ZPCT PMTCT program in other settings.
This starter kit:
- Describes components of the ZPCT PMTCT intervention and the evidence of its effectiveness
- Discusses the core elements that contribute to the intervention’s positive impact
- Provides links to program materials — such as training materials and job aids — with descriptions of how they are used
- Includes appendices with the latest World Health Organization PMTCT guidelines and general guidance on replicating effective programs
