Summary

The Pacific Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) Training Package is a curriculum adapted from the PMTCT Generic Training Package in order to improve PMTCT services across four Pacific Island countries: Fiji, Vanuatu, Kiribati and Solomon Islands. Using an integrated, comprehensive approach to HIV and STI prevention and care for women, men, and children, the package provides information and introductory skills on the essential components of a PMTCT program, facilitates the reduction of HIV-related stigma, and promotes community linkages. It is composed of 9 modules. For each module there is a Trainer's Manual, Participant's Manual and a Presentation Booklet which can be downloaded individually or as a complete packet. A unique cover for each island nation can be used to to complete the manuals. [HIV prevention and treatment guidelines change frequently based on clinical research study findings. Please refer to the WHO or U.S. DHHS guidelines for the most current recommendations on ARV treatment and PMTCT.]
