Background
• 1.2 million pregnancies
occur annually in
Karnataka state, South
India
• HIV prevalence in ANCs
from HIV Sentinel
Surveillance (HSS) was
0.86% in 2008
• PPTCT program in
Karnataka has worked
as a vertical program
implemented by
Karnataka State AIDS
Prevention Society
(KSAPS).
• PPTCT activities were
therefore not seen as
part of the existing
health system, and
general health resources
were not tapped
• This resulted in gaps in
HIV testing and followup for pregnant women
Methods
• An inter-departmental government directive was issued on
PPTCT-NRHM integration in 2008
• Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs; grass-root level workers
under NRHM) were given responsibilities to implement the
PPTCT Program
• Reporting was built into the regular health department
management information system
• Government District AIDS Prevention and Control Unit Officers,
and Reproductive and Child Health Officers, monitored the
implementation of PPTCT activities at district level
• Line-listings of HIV positive pregnant women were made
available to all health care providers on a “shared
confidentiality” basis after obtaining client’s consent
• Special Camps were organized to mobilize ANC for 3rd
trimester: 0.1million ANC mobilized through camps

• Uptake of testing
improved from 272,263
pregnant women tested in
2007 to 796,667 in 2009
April-09 to March-10
No.of Spouse Tested
• Approximately 9,500
ANMs and 2000 primary
care medical officers form
the program backbone
which was earlier being
done by a handful of
NGOs
Conclusion
• Integration was accomplished with the commitment
and involvement of stakeholders from the highest
levels of government to grass-root level workers, with
clear-cut roles and responsibilities.
• Wastage and duplication of resources was avoided,
which helped bring the program to scale.
• Two years’ experience has shown that mainstreaming
can achieve the scale-up of PPTCT services, by
utilizing the strengths of the existing health systems to
cater to the needs of pregnant women
• This model has now been recommended for national
replication
