Columbia’s ICAP Working with UNICEF

Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health’s ICAP is partnering with UNICEF to accelerate progress towards eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV. In this latest initiative, Optimizing HIV Treatment Access for Pregnant Women (OHTA) aims to strengthen the capacity of primary health care systems to deliver antiretroviral treatment (ART) for HIV-positive pregnant and breastfeeding women in Cote d’Ivoire, Malawi, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together, these countries represent 22 percent of the global gap in ART coverage for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT).
