NADYA TAKES A STAND TO STOP THE CYCLE OF HIV

By PASQUINE OGUNSANYA | PROJECT LEADER

 

Alive Medical Services Comprehensive Elimination of Mother To Child Transmission of HIV  package 

Through the specialized program for maternal and child health ensuring the birth of HIV-negative babies to HIV-positive mothers. AMS’ Comprehensive EMTCT package ensures early identification and timely intervention of high-risk mothers that include newly diagnosed HIV positive expectant mothers and virally unsuppressed expectant mothers living with HIV. These are intentionally followed up during antenatal care (ANC) and post-natal care (PNC).  The babies are then followed up until they are 18 months when they are discharged from the EID clinic. 

Early Infant Diagnosis clinic

Every Tuesday, AMS gives special attention to HIV positive mothers and their babies aged 0-2 years whereby there is the provision of care, support, and treatment to ensure that the baby turns out negative at the last antibody test. 

The clinic continues to offer immunization services, pre- and post-natal services to all expecting mothers irrespective of their HIV status. This year, 1,469 babies were immunized. 165 of those are fully immunized babies. The clinic also provides pre-and post-natal care services to both HIV positive and negative mothers. Other diseases immunized include tuberculosis, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, hepatitis B, pneumococcal pneumonia, and measles, among others.

Prenatal care clinic

The prenatal care clinic is held every Thursday for pregnant women to have access to ultrasound scan services by a sonographer and a full examination by a designated midwife and clinician. This clinic focuses on monitoring the viral load for HIV positive expectant mothers, client assessment, CD4 and ART refill to safeguard the birth of an HIV free and healthy child.

This year 410 women received ANC services; 570 women were provided with ultrasound scan services.

During these ANC services, there is also the provision of psychosocial support and health education sessions to the HIV positive expectant mothers on the acquisition and administering of the Nevirapine syrup to their babies as soon as they are born, as well as safe infant feeding practices and schedules for both PCR and anti-body tests.
