USAID | DELIVER PROJECT
South Africa has one of the highest HIV rates in the world. DELIVER works on a range of health commodities related to HIV prevention, including male and female condoms, and drugs to decrease maternal-to-child transmission of HIV.
Help Expand Antiretroviral Therapy for Children and Families (Project HEART)
Through Project HEART, JSI developed a tool to better link medical records from ART clinics with maternity wards so that pregnant women can have better access to pMTCT.
MTCT-Plus Data Management Center
The clinical care paradigm for this initiative is family-centered and holistic, addressing the stigma and physical and mental health needs of HIV+ women and their family members, in addition to the distribution of anti-retroviral medications.
MTCT-Plus Implementation and Quality Assistance (IQA) Project (2004-2005)
Through this initiative JSI built on pMTCT efforts and provided comprehensive HIV primary care and ART for HIV-infected mothers and infants.
