Blog: The "Business Case" For PMTCT

March 12, 2010

"Virtually eliminating HIV transmission from mother to child is possible, and can be done by 2015, but only if everyone, including the private sector, is fully committed to take action," according to a Huffington Post blog post that makes the "business case" for backing the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT). "Along with the concrete benefits to private sector partners of being part of a groundbreaking global health success story -- generating good will and attracting top employees -- companies can improve their bottom lines in countries where they do business by fostering a productive workforce," the blog notes and highlights ways for companies to help (Sidibe/Tedstrom, 3/5).
