Abstract

Finding ways to leverage the substantial investment in prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV to address other maternal, neonatal, and child health threats is a priority. With increased emphasis on health systems strengthening and the integration of disease-specific initiatives within primary care, we propose three areas for consideration: 1) increased integration of service delivery; 2) adaptation of successful implementation models; and 3) a reconceptualization of the care continuums for prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission and maternal, neonatal, and child health.
