Community Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (c-PMTCT)

June 2012
For the first time, the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV is considered a realistic public health goal and an important part of the campaign to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals(MDGs) 4, 5 and 6. As an organisation that works directly in the communities, World Vision sees its role in strengthening PMTCT on this level. Therefore, the organisation’s focus is on community-PMTCT (c-PMTCT). Community-based interventions within each of the four ‘prongs’ of PMTCT are designed to increase community need (demand) for health services and commodities and to strengthen the quality of these services at the primary health-care (PHC) level. In addition, community institutions themselves are strengthened to advocate for the supply of services in accordance with international guidelines, and they are empowered to sustain the social mobilisation and the continuum of care for mothers and children within a family-based approach. c-PMTCT includes the early diagnosis of exposed infants and clinical referral for enrolment in CPT and ART to reduce preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5. This family-based approach ensures that male partners and other household cultural influencers are involved in the care and treatment of mother and child.

A Biblical Worldview Needed for the Prevention of HIV/AIDS

In this landmark paper, professor Dick Day argues that if the HIV/AIDS pandemic is to be curbed in Africa, there must be a paradigm shift as a prerequiste to behavior change. The most important behavioral change facing Africa is in the area of sexual behavior. There is a need for a shift to a Biblical worldview that sees God as the Creator and Designer of human sexuality.

Global Future 2006, Number 1

Survey of the Sexual Practices of Youth Attending Evangelical Churches in Antigua, St. Lucia and St. Vincent

There is general indifference among Evangelical congregations in the Caribbean to the AIDS pandemic. Congregations need to be mobilised to enable congregants to properly guard against the disease, to reduce and eventually remove stigmatisation of and discrimination against persons living with HIV (PLWH), and develop adequate mechanisms that enable Evangelical Christian youth to handle their sexuality within an understanding of Biblical teaching, scientific accuracy and culturally appropriate methods.
