Summary

This article examines PMTCT and early infant diagnosis (EID) in Botswana from 2005-2012. Despite successful PMTCT programs in Botswana, almost one third of HIV-exposed infants in Francistown were not tested by the EID program. The results in Botswana were similar to those observed in other sub-Saharan countries. EID program data in several African countries show the estimated completion rate from HIV testing to initiation of ART ranged from 0.5% to 52.8%.
