EGPAF implements PMTCT activities in 5 regions (Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Shinyanga, Tabora and Mtwara). The program works in a total of 34 districts. The ANC HIV prevalence of 2008 was 4.6% in Kilimanjaro, 5.6% in Arusha, 7.1% in Shinyanga, 6.5% in Tabora, and 6.8% in Mtwara. Based on SAPR 10, the site coverage is good at 81% in Kilimanjaro, 81% in Arusha, 87% in Shinyanga, 99% in Tabora, and 78% in Mtwara. While the intervention coverage is good and ranges from 20% to 46%, the coverage of more efficacious regimen and early infant diagnosis is not to scale. EGPAF will support scale-up of PMTCT services in the five regions to cover 80% of pregnant women with counseling and testing. HIV negative women, will undergo re-testing late pregnancy, labor and delivery or during postpartum period and sero-conversion will be documented. Women found to be HIV positive will be provided with ARV prophylaxis (75% and 85% of HIV positive pregnant women in 2011 and 2012 respectively) in the five regions. The IP will support the scale-up of EID to reach 65% of HIV exposed infants through RCH clinics. Couple counseling and partner testing will be promoted, couples and discordant couples followed up and supported.
