Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC), 2018.

This AIDS 2018 presentation reviewed PEPFAR strategies to support elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV including more systematic and frequent viral load (VL) monitoring throughout pregnancy/breastfeeding with rapid intervention for viral failure as well as enhanced interventions for HIV-exposed infants, including point-of-care early infant diagnosis to shorten results and allow earlier access to antiretroviral therapy.
