Expanding Access to Good Practices on EMTCT of HIV and Syphilis through SSC

The Community of Practice on South-South Cooperation for Children (CoP-SSC4C), a joint initiative by UNICEF, UNOSSC and IPC-IG, organised its fourth thematic webinar on 31 January, 2019. The objective of the webinar was to discuss and share ideas on how to increase access to successful EMTCT practices through South-South Cooperation. By means of knowledge exchange and sharing good practices, South-South Cooperation can be used as a vehicle to reach the SDG targets and improve health and development in countries of the Global South. 

The attachments of this entry include a series of case studies that exposed strategies and lessons learned toward achieving EMTCT. The case studies included the countries of Cuba, Thailand, and South Africa, which are countries that have been successful in reducing the number of vertical transmission of HIV and Syphilis.
