PMTCT strategic vision 2010-2015
Preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV to reach the UNGASS and Millennium Development Goals

PMTCT strategic vision 2010-2015This publication reflects an important part of WHO's health sector response to HIV/AIDS and will contribute directly to the new Outcome framework of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

The purpose of this document is to define WHO's commitment to global and country support to scale up access to prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV services and integrate these services with maternal, newborn and child health programmes. The objectives included in PMTCT strategic vision 2010–2015 illustrate WHO's ongoing commitment to the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) goals on PMTCT and strengthening support for PMTCT within the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
