Within the OSC programme HIV-positive women access pregnancy care, paediatric care, HIV care, vaccination services, cervical cancer screening programmes and care for exposed infants by one visit only reducing the number of appointments, long waiting times and expenses for transport fees. This model showed to improve retention in care greatly.
Furthermore, the OSC has successfully improved the awareness and clinical skills of health workers involved in Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and Pediatric HIV by regular trainings within the district. Besides healthcare workers, collaboration with district authorities and representatives of USAID in the Morogoro Region are key of success. The One Stop Clinic has developed tools to guide and facilitate management of HIV-infected pregnant women, mothers and children.
