Sumary of ‘Under $1’ test kits available to stop mother-child HIV/syphilis transmission  :

  • They can also enable more countries to eliminate mother-to-child transmission (EMTCT) of HIV and syphilis.
  • For Meg Doherty, Director of WHO Global HIV, Hepatitis and STI [Sexually transmitted disease] Programmes, the new pricing is an exciting development.
  • “It will help more countries adopt dual HIV/syphilis testing and accelerate progress toward EMTCT for both HIV and syphilis and deliver services for key populations, where both infections are common”, she said.
  • not only as the first line in antenatal care to help countries eliminate mother-to-child transmission, but also as a way to cut costs.
  • Many countries have adopted these recommendations and are introducing the tests, particularly in the African Region.
