This review was commissioned by UNAIDS to highlight the essential and complementary role of communities in working towards elimination of perinatal transmission. The study sought to identify and share promising practices that could strengthen programs, facilitate efforts to stop HIV transmission to children, and enable their mothers to remain healthy. The authors used literature review and key informant interviews to define promising practices and organize them by primary intended outcomes. "Promising practices" were defined as a practice for which there is documented evidence of effectiveness in achieving intended results and some indication of replicability, scaleup or sustainability. The study describes each practice, provides documented examples, and summarizes the lessons learned.
