  • Case study from Rwanda
    A glimpse of the future: eliminating new HIV infections among children and keeping their mothers alive.

The purpose of this case study is to illustrate how an integrated, comprehensive approach to delivering an elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (eMTCT) programme has been operationalized in practice. It focuses particularly on how an HIV programme can be delivered through a sexual and reproductive health platform and the community. The case study uses the experience of Rwanda to demonstrate what is possible.
