  • Improving Retention, Adherence and Psychosocial Support within PMTCT Services: A Toolkit for Health Workers
    ICAP PMTCT Guide The materials in the Toolkit were designed to aid multidisciplinary care teams in providing women, families, and babies with increased support for retention, adherence, and psychosocial wellbeing throughout the continuum of PMTCT care.

All of the Toolkit materials are generic in form to facilitate adaptation to suit specific programatic and policy content by local stakeholders.
