The National Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS (2014-2018) guides the national efforts to maintain the low prevalence of HIV in the Maldives. The elimination of mother to child transmission (EMTCT) of HIV and syphilis in the Maldives is an important public health milestone reflecting effective and equitable national policies and services that place people first. Universal access to antenatal care and screening for syphilis and HIV is ensured through an extensive network of public sector hospitals, health centres and private health facilities. Prevention of MTCT of HIV and syphilis infection is given special attention within the Reproductive Health (RH) programme. An important target is to screen 100% of women attending ANC clinics for HIV and syphilis.
