Namibia Launches National Program to Promote Men's Involvement in PMTCT Services

March 16, 2011

New Era/allAfrica.com reports on a national program launched last week in Namibia that aims to encourage male partners' involvement in antenatal care and services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV. According to the newspaper, the 10-month campaign is "the brainchild of first lady Madam Penehupifo Pohamba." At the program's kickoff last Thursday, Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba described the importance of PMTCT in driving down new HIV/AIDS infections in the country, and WHO Country Representative Magda Robalo addressed the role PMTCT services play in improving the overall health of the entire family (Kapitako, 3/14).
