Sixteen women living with HIV and 36 women with syphilis delivered during 2018. All pregnant women with HIV received treatment following national protocols, and the new-borns remain free of infection. Among pregnant women with syphilis, 97% received treatment and annual rate of congenital syphilis was 1.5 per 100 000 live births. Process indicators have improved with 97.5% in 2017 and 96.4% in 2018 for coverage of ANC attendance. These figures have been achieved through the government services.
