DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.174
Pages:

Contact Investigation in the Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV Comparing Urban and Rural Outcomes in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
282–6

ABSTRACT

Background and Purpose: The contact investigators played a significant role in the decline of infectious syphilis in Jamaica and are likely important players in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) in the HIV programme. A brief evaluation was done comparing the outcomes of contact investigation in Kingston and St Andrew (KSA) with that of the contact investigation in two rural parishes.
