Summary

Sierra Leone is the first country to adapt the 2011 version of the TC for PMTCT Support Tools, which incorporate the most recent WHO guidelines and include content for couple counseling. The FXB Center team began working with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation in 2011 to align the Support Tools ANC flipcharts with Sierra Leone’s national guidelines and ensure the content and images were culturally appropriate. In early 2012, FXB Center staff conducted a one-day training for a group of 15 participant counselors followed by a one-day field visit to ANC sites where the participants had the opportunity to practice using the flipcharts with patients in group and individual sessions. The Sierra Leone flipcharts were finalized with the inclusion of lessons learned from the field visits, suggestions from the counselors who attended the training, and the input of the Sierra Leone PMTCT-EID Technical Working Group.
