Promoting Community-Based Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV in Tanzania’s Kigoma Region

From March to September 2012, AIDSTAR-One, in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute, the Kigoma Local Government Authority, and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, implemented a six month demonstration project on PMTCT in 10 dispensaries in a rural district in Tanzania's Kigoma Region. The goal of the project was to pilot a service delivery model designed to improve the competency and motivation of community health workers as a way of increasing access to and uptake of PMTCT services and strengthening community linkages to facility-based PMTCT services in rural areas. This report summarizes the project’s goals, challenges, and successes.
