Learn more about AIDSFree's PMTCT and systems strengthening work in Swaziland

The Kingdom of Swaziland has one of the world's highest HIV prevalence rates. Led by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), AIDSFree will work closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and local partners to:

  • Expand coverage of high-quality, integrated, decentralized, and comprehensive HIV and AIDS and tuberculosis (TB) prevention, care, and treatment clinical services at health facilities in the Hhohho and Shiselweni regions that show continuous improvements in patient outcomes.
  • Strengthen regional data management systems and build Regional Health Management Teams’ (RHMT) capacity to employ strong stewardship of HIV/TB service delivery informed by routine monitoring of patient outcomes.
  • Integrate HIV and TB care and treatment services with other essential primary health care platforms and provide expert assessments to identify and address organizational development needs.
  • Strengthen the maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) platform by providing technical assistance and support to the Sexual and Reproductive Health Unit (SRHU) and the Swaziland National AIDS Program (SNAP) to scale up and sustain high-quality prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) and pediatric HIV/TB services.
