Management Sciences for Health (MSH) Malawi Country Program, in partnership with Dignitas International (DI), is implementing the National Evaluation of Malawi Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) Program (NEMAPP) that aims to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the new integrated approach to PMTCT known as Option B+. NEMAPP will follow up a cohort of HIV-exposed infants and their mothers until 24 months of age or weaning in 54 health facilities (in 10 out of 28 districts) in Malawi. A smaller subset of mother-infant pairs will be followed up to 48 months to determine longer term outcomes. The 4.5 year project was commissioned by the Ministry of Health (MOH) with funding from United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
