Impact

  • Identification of novel strategies using PoC-VL and enhanced PNP to further reduce MTCT
  • Demonstration that the UNAIDS 90:90:90 goals are achievable in infants by using PoC-EID linked to early ART and improved retention in care
  • Impact of PoC-EID linked and nurse initiated early infant ART on long-term infant mortality/morbidity
  • Cost effectiveness data on the impact of PoC-VL monitoring to reduce MTCT, and on the impact of PoCEID at birth and nurse initiated infant ART on long term HIV-infected infant health outcomes
  • Enhanced understanding of the impact of early and very early ART on viral reservoirs and HIV remission in infants
