Executive Summary

Antenatal HIV testing programmes in nine countries are to share in a $50m cash allocation from the WHO, UNICEF, UNITAID that is aimed at avoiding mother-to-child transmission. Over the next two years, some 10 million pregnant women in the Central African Republic, China, Haiti, Lesotho, Myanmar (Burma), Nigeria, Swaziland, Uganda and Zimbabwe will be tested, and 285,000 mothers and newborns will be treated.
