Review of the programme on the prevention of HIV infection in infants and young children : The Russian Federation, Moscow, Russian Federation 14-15 December 2004
AbstractThe Russian Federation is one of countries in the European region facing a fast growing HIV/AIDS epidemic. Starting in 2001, interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission have been implemented in the majority of its regions. The country is facing a challenge to improve its approaches to preventing HIV infection in infants. The workshop held in December 2004 had the objective of analyzing the organizational structure and regulatory framework of these interventions. A document prepared by a panel of experts from the Research center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (RAMS) and WHO Regional Office for Europe, based on the assessment of mother-to-child HIV transmission in four regions of the Russian Federation, served as a basis for the workshop. Participants recommended that the UN strategic framework for prevention of HIV infection in infants be adopted as a baseline for future programme development
