Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV in Zambia: Implementing Efficacious ARV Regimens in Primary Health Centers

August 2009 — This document reports on the implementation of and factors associated with efficacious antiretroviral therapy regimens among HIV-positive pregnant women attending antenatal clinics in primary health centers in Zambia. Efficacious antiretroviral therapy regimens beyond single-dose nevirapine can be implemented in resource-limited primary health centers. Factors associated with implementation of more efficacious regimens include timing of blood-draw for CD4 count and capacity to initiate combination antiretroviral therapy onsite where services for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV are offered.
