Updated MSF PMTCT and Paediatric Guidelines now available

2014 updates of MSF’s PMTCT and Paediatric HIV handbooks are available.  These two handbooks nicely complement the MSF HIV/TB Clinical Guide and are particularly useful for projects that focus on mother and child health (MCH) activities.  Both guides describe medical interventions for HIV-positive pregnant women who may present antenatally, during labour, or postnatally, along with how to test an HIV-exposed infant and initiate an HIV-positive child on ART.  A full PMTCT toolkit, including an e-learning module, is under development and PMTCT and paediatric HIV trainings are being planned for 2015.  For more information, please contact helen.bygrave@joburg.msf.org.
