Começando Saudável (“Starting Off Healthy”), Roseanne’s performance-based incentives intervention in partnership with CARE Mozambique, launched in August. This one-year pilot is engaging health center staff, community volunteers, and traditional birth attendants in improving delivery of prevention of vertical transmission of HIV services to pregnant and lactating women living with HIV and their HIV-exposed children in rural Mozambique. The Começando Saudável team just completed the first of three timepoints of surveys measuring the motivation, knowledge, time demands, and resource available to these three cadres of health workers.
Our metasynthesis on infant feeding attitudes and practices among HIV-exposed infants has been published ahead of print. Congratulations, Emily, on your first paper!
