PREFA’s flagship project is Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV (eMTCT) that is funded by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The project’s mode of implementation is technical assistance through Health Systems Strengthening and through the District Led Approach. The target beneficiaries include HIV positive mothers, their babies and partners.
To reach them, PREFA engages in facility and community level activities. Thematic areas of focus include: Capacity building for health workers, Care & treatment for mother-baby pairs, facility-community linkages, gender integration, and family planning, Monitoring & Evaluation as well as National & District level coordination.
The eMTCT project is being implemented in six districts of Wakiso, Nakasongola, Luwero, Masaka, Lwengo and Kalungu in over 160 health facilities.
