ASRT conducted data entry for CHAI in the project Pediatric Provider Initiated Testing and Counselling (PITC) screening slip to inform HIV analysis.
Starting in mid-2018, consolidation of evidence and experience from stakeholders and implementing partners formed the basis to develop a set of standardized PITC tools to screen children presenting to a health facility.
The draft tools were piloted and data and experiences from the first pilot were used to inform revisions to the tools for a second and broader pilot. This Phase II pilot commenced in July 2019 in 33 health facilities across Malawi. Data from screening slips of the Phase II pilot were captured to allow for an in-depth analysis on the efficacy of the tools. Each slip had a minimum of 11 and maximum of 20 variables to be captured
Scaling-up access to emergency obstetric care and critical family planning services through the development of human resources for health
Improving maternal and child health is a priority for the Government of Malawi. The lack of skilled birth attendants leading up to, during and following labour and delivery, leads to a significant proportion of preventable deaths every year. The goal of the project was to improve critical family planning services which can contribute significantly to reduction of maternal and child mortality.
