The Regional Framework for the Triple Elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphilis in Asia and the Pacific 2018-2030 upholds the vision that every infant should be free of HIV, hepatitis B and syphilis. The framework presents an integrated and coordinated appoach towards the goal of achieving and sustaining triple EMTCT, emphasizing the principle of people-centred care and a human-rights-based approach for all women, children and their families, by promoting collaboration among programmes addressing RMNCH, HIV, hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections and immunization.
Triple EMTCT interventions accessed through RMNCH services include: preventing unintended pregnancy; early antenatal care to allow effective case detection during pregnancy; rapid diagnosis; timely and appropriate treatment in pregnancy as well as during and after childbirth; and partner testing and treatment. Closing gaps, avoiding duplication and identifying missed opportunities will improve the quality and efficiency of service delivery and result in better outcomes.
