Challenge

The Togolese government spends just $9 USD per capita per year on healthcare amounting to less than 1% of its gross domestic product. This small amount is inadequate to effectively deal with the HIV/AIDS epidemic and specifically to prevent the transmission of HIV from women to their children.

Solution

The Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) program supported by Hope Through Health coordinates medical consultations and the provision of essential medications and nutrition support for pregnant women living with HIV and their children.

Long-Term Impact

This program will directly impact 100 expecting moms and their children by providing the prevention services necessary to help these moms give birth to babies who are HIV-free.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
