Linking women who test HIV positive in antenatal and maternity services to long-term HIV care and treatment services in Kenya: Missed Opportunities

Improved access to services for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) has decreased vertical HIV transmission. However parallel attention to women’s access to HIV care and treatment for themselves has often been lacking.

The research is organised in four key themes:

1. What “package” of HIV treatment and care services should be provided in different settings?
2. What delivery systems should be used in different contexts?
3. How best should HIV treatment and care be integrated into existing health and social systems?
4. How can new knowledge related to the first three questions be rapidly translated into improved policy and programming?
