Abstract

"The Consultant went to Cambodia from Nov. 29th to Dec. 13th 1999 in the framework of a WHO Mission in order: To undertake a feasibility assessment of the possibility of using antiretroviral therapy (ARV) to prevent vertical transmission (from mother to child) of HIV in Cambodia on a limited scale (e.g. some hospitals or MCH centers) or larger scale (Provincial or National). This study will include assessments of the operational and resource requirements of such an intervention; operational feasibility; cost-effectiveness; potential impact of such programs on reducing financial, human and other resources available for primary prevention and the likely sustainability requirements for this intervention."
