PROVEN INTERVENTION TO BE DISTRIBUTED

Retention in care and adherence to anti-retroviral treatment for people living with HIV. 

Learn more about the PMTCT Challenge and how increasing completion of antiretroviral therapy (ART) to prevent mother to child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV can decrease HIV rates and improve lives.

DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION

Sauti ya Mama is a high impact social enterprise that aims to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMCTC) of HIV by ensuring ART adherence by HIV-positive expectant mothers.

The pilot will take place in Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya. Community Health Volunteers will enroll, advise, and track expectant mothers. SMS reminders will be sent to ensure adherence to the ART regimen. The Sauti ya Mama model will work to create an impact on expectant mothers in low income settings to ensure they live long and productive lives.

PILOT AND SCALING GOALS

  • Reach 150 expectant mothers during the pilot phase

  • Reach 1,000 expectant mothers by the end of year 1

  • Reach 2,000 expectant mothers by the end of year 2
