Triple Elimination Resource Compendium

Background

For more than 4 years, the Global Health Impact Group (GHIG), in collaboration with the International Diagnostics Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (IDC/LSHTM) has partnered with WHO, UNICEF, and other key partners to support the elimination of mother-to-child transmission (EMTCT) of HIV and syphilis through increased advocacy and awareness, tools and resources, country regional workshops to share best practices, webinars and country technical assistance.

Triple Elimination Resource Compendium

Introduction of the Triple Elimination Resource Compendium CPD Site

As part of this ongoing effort, GHIG has developed the Triple Elimination Resource Compendium CPD Site as an open-access forum of practical tools and resources for planning and implementation of services related to EMTCT of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B, with a particular focus on screening of pregnant women in ANC.

Objectives

  • Promote an integrated and coordinated approach to Triple Elimination that breaks down programmatic silos
  • Facilitate introduction and scale-up of PMTCT testing and save time, effort, and money by providing pragmatic tools and resources that countries can adapt for their own planning and implementation
  • Present and organize the resources in a format that is easily accessible and speaks to the needs of front-line workers involved in the rollout of new programmatic interventions at the program, facility, and community levels
  • Promote collaboration and information-sharing across countries by establishing a platform for sharing of resources
  • Accelerate efforts towards high coverage and impact with the goal of validation of EMTCT of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B

Intended Users

Program and laboratory managers, Ministry of Health and other relevant government stakeholders, donors, front-line clinicians, and community health workers, civil society organizations, data management staff, supply chain, and procurement specialists.
