Preventing Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission through Family Planning in Maternal and Child Health Services: Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa

2010 — Between 2007 and 2009, FHI 360 conducted three assessment studies of preventing mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services in Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa. Researchers considered whether HIV-positive pregnant and recently postpartum women with unmet contraceptive need could be reached with family planning services in facilities that offered antenatal care (ANC), postnatal care (PNC) and child welfare services/child health services. They also assessed provider readiness to offer family planning services. This publication highlights the findings of the study — including those specific to South Africa.
