Training tools for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV
A series of training materials have been developed to support countries in building human capacity in the area of preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV. The materials have been developed by different departments within WHO or in collaboration with other key agencies.
IMAI/IMPAC clinical training for integrated PMTCT services
This integrated clinical training targets primary level health workers (usually nurses or midwives) in resource-limited settings. It prepares antenatal, delivery, and postnatal service providers to integrate HIV prevention, care and treatment including ART and ARV prophylaxis within routine MNCH services. This participatory, modular five-day training is designed to follow the WHO basic HIV care/ART training.
This training is based on the WHO modules:
IMAI-IMCI Chronic HIV Care with ARV Therapy and Prevention guideline module (2007)
Pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and newborn care: A guide for essential practice (2006)
[To access the updated version of Chronic HIV Care guideline modules and the IMAI-IMPAC clinical training for integrated PMTCT services based on the WHO 2010 guidelines for Antiretroviral drugs for treating pregnant women and preventing HIV infection in infants, please send an email to email@example.com.]
Other complementary trainings include:
Reproductive choices and family planning for PLHIV (2007)
Three interlinked patient monitoring systems for HIV care/ART, MCH/PMTCT, and TB/HIV: Standardized Minimum Data set and Illustrative Tools (2009)
