Background:

The National AIDs and STI Control Program (NASCP) has prioritized addressing PMTCT to close the gap on the increasing number of children living with HIV. NASCP in collaboration with partners, supported states to develop State-specific strategic frameworks. The state-specific frameworks now form the basis for a National PMTCT Scale-up approach and details MTCT elimination targets to be achieved by the end of 2023 by each state. The ANC and PMTCT performance across the country has been poor with 67% of pregnant women receiving ANC care from skilled birth attendants, 9% receive care from unskilled attendants while 24% do not receive any form of care. One of the identified challenges is suboptimal antenatal care visits during pregnancy where HIV testing services are provided. To address these challenges, NASCP is supporting states to scale up PMTCT services across the country. The PMTCT scale-plan aims to implement a minimum package of services across all states and additional demand creation services in 36+1 states that contribute the highest number of women who do not receive any form of care or receive care from informal service providers during pregnancy. The additional demand creation services are aimed at using information, education, and communication materials to drive demand for testing services for pregnant women. The aim is to target women of child-bearing age, recipients of care, social groups, traditional and religious leaders, and gate keepers in each LGA in all states. A set of posters and radio broadcasts will be produced and disseminated using various approaches; including but not limited to community mobilizers, radio jingles.
