On 19 June 2019, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) and UNICEF conducted a webinar on the disclosure of HIV status in paediatric and adolescent care. The webinar presented components of the Disclosure of HIV Status Toolkit for Pediatric and Adolescent Populations, an evidence-based toolkit developed by EGPAF as part of the New Horizons Advancing Pediatric HIV Care Collaborative. It is now available for download in English and French<mailto:http://www.pedaids.org/resource/disclosure-of-hiv-status-toolkit-for-pediatric-and-adolescent-populations/>; a Portuguese version will soon be released.

The toolkit provides general guidance, practical tools and job aides including disclosure algorithms for caregivers, providers, and children and adolescents themselves to deliver informed disclosure. The speakers discussed the meaningful engagement of adolescents in the toolkit development process through the active participation of youth advisors in developing and validating the tools. The webinar discussion also addressed the barriers and enablers of disclosure in HIV care for children and adolescents.

Highlights from the Laboratory System Strengthening Community of Practice Project


Webinar: Practical considerations for implementing
point-of-care testing for HIV early infant diagnosis



[https://gallery.mailchimp.com/82682f0b9776eacd79feac406/images/3dddb921-5771-4847-afea-71117cbb83f7.png]<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5x-YAj3sUU&feature=youtu.be>



Led by the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM), the Laboratory Systems Strengthening Community of Practice (LabCoP)<http://www.aslm.org/labcop/> fosters South-South learning and knowledge exchange in order to strengthen laboratory systems and improve health outcomes.


On 20 March 2019, LabCoP hosted a webinar covering considerations for implementing point-of-care (POC) testing for early infant diagnosis (EID) of HIV, presented by Jeff Lemaire, Diagnostics Advisor at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF).

Through investments from Unitaid, a collaboration between ASLM, Clinton Health Access Initiative, EGPAF and UNICEF has been working to integrate POC EID testing into the national laboratory systems of 15 countries and demonstrating promising results in increasing rates of HIV testing and initiation of antiretroviral therapy. Learning from this experience, the following were identified as key considerations for implementing POC testing for HIV EID:

* Leadership, governance and planning
* Site and product selection, site capacity assessments and national approval
* Site enrolment, orientation, training, and competency assessments
* Site monitoring, support, and post-market surveillance of in vitro diagnostics
* Quantification, procurement, supply chain, and waste management
* Quality assurance and information systems
The webinar also discussed other practical issues to consider in implementation, such as the location of the POC equipment; the flow of clients, samples and results; and the intensive training of health care workers required to manage and maintain quality compliance. View the full ECHO session here<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5x-YAj3sUU&feature=youtu.be>.

Additional practical guidance and tools for the introduction of POC technologies into national diagnostic networks can be found in the HIV Point-of-Care Diagnostics Toolkit<https://www.childrenandaids.org/poc-toolkit-page>.

NEW UNICEF PUBLICATION:
Evidence-based practices for retention in care from Eastern and Southern Africa



[https://gallery.mailchimp.com/82682f0b9776eacd79feac406/images/34aadb16-1508-4abc-b185-59de2d8c2e36.png]<http://childrenandaids.org/EBP-retention-ESA>


UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) released Evidence-based practices for retention in care of mother-infant pairs in the context of elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (EMTCT) <http://childrenandaids.org/EBP-retention-ESA> in Eastern and Southern Africa<http://childrenandaids.org/EBP-retention-ESA>, a report examining the evidence base on improving care for women living with HIV and their infants. Through an extensive literature review, stakeholder consultations and country visits, 10 evidence-based practices that reduce barriers to retention in care were identified. These practices are organized into four intervention areas: service quality, human resources, use of health information and demand generation. The report describes the best practices and key considerations for implementation, and provides helpful tools and resources.




This overview of evidence-based practices for retention in the context of EMTCT is a resource for global HIV and health partners in the work towards improving care and support for all women living with HIV and their children.

A New Tool for Adolescent Girls and Young Women




Envision for Girls is a data hub that illustrates the multiple intersecting vulnerabilities experienced by adolescent girls and young women, tracks the global investments made to date and provides an update on programmatic actions at country level.

[https://gallery.mailchimp.com/82682f0b9776eacd79feac406/images/44f5d0a1-0800-4f44-b4c0-6edf7797ee01.png]<http://www.childrenandaids.org/agywviz>


Visit: www.childrenandaids.org/agywviz<http://www.childrenandaids.org/agywviz>


"I am elated to announce Envision for Girls<http://www.childrenandaids.org/agywviz>: a data hub that maps programmes, and highlights opportunities for realizing the well-being of adolescent girls and young women. Knowing where the investments are, and where the gaps exist is now simply a few clicks away for HIV prevention advocates, ministries of health, national programme managers and donor agencies. This dashboard was created with the belief that to reach ambitious goals, current programme investments must be better aligned, and should target localities where new infections are highest."

This webinar will provide a summary of implementation and community-led research related to retention of mothers and infants in the context of PMTCT in Eastern and Southern Africa.

Presenters include:
Philip K Wambua, Independent Consultant in Public Health

Philip Wambua will present on 'Evidence based practices for retention in care of mother infant pairs in the context of PMTCT in Eastern and Southern Africa'. He will also present guidance for scale-up to improve retention of mothers and their infants in care. This research was commissioned by UNICEF Eastern and Southern African Regional Office.

Clara Banya, ICW Malawi

Clara Banya will present the findings from community-led research conducted by GNP+ and ICW that sought the views of women living with HIV who were initiated on antiretroviral treatment during pregnancy or breastfeeding on factors that enabled them to successfully adhere to their treatment and return to health facilities for follow-up services and care.

'Walking in our shoes; Perspectives of pregnant and breastfeeding women living with HIV on access to and retention in care in Malawi, Uganda and Zambia' highlights the key factors that facilitate retention in care and calls for increased focus on rights and dignity in care for women living with HIV.

Dear Colleagues,
Sharing with you an upcoming webinar series on the Toolkit for Research and Development of Paediatric ARV Drugs and Formulations that starts tomorrow.

-----
Toolkit for research and development of paediatric antiretroviral drugs and formulations

Various efforts have enabled better alignment and convergence around key principles in paediatric drug development. These principles now need to be crystallised and promoted, so that higher standards in paediatric drug research and development can be ensured. The toolkit was initiated by the WHO and Unitaid in collaboration with, IMPAACT, PENTAid and the WHO convened Paediatric ARV Working Group (PAWG). The toolkit identifies the challenges and outlines possible solutions for promoting and accelerating timely and high-quality research and development of antiretroviral drug formulations suitable for infants, children, adolescents, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

> convened Paediatric ARV Working Group (PAWG). The toolkit identifies the
> challenges and outlines possible solutions for promoting and accelerating
> timely and high-quality research and development of antiretroviral drug
> formulations suitable for infants, children, adolescents, and pregnant and
> breastfeeding women.

3 months 2 weeks ago
ASLM Celebrates World Antibiotic Awareness Week and Spotlights Antimicrobial Resistance at ASLM2018 ASLM Celebrates World Antibiotic Awareness Week and Spotlights Antimicrobial Resistance at ASLM2018 Today is the first day of World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2018, a World Health Organization campaign to increase global awareness of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a major public health issue which threatens our ability to treat and prevent infectious diseases. http://www.who.int/who-campaigns/world-antibiotic-awareness-week AMR and the laboratory’s role in halting this threat will be a major topic of discussion at ASLM2018 in Abuja, Nigeria 10-13 December 2018 (register here). In addition to posters and oral presentations highlighting key research, there will be a symposium on 11 December entitled “Combating Antimicrobial Resistance in Africa”, presented by Frank Koning (WHO) and Pascale Ondoa (ASLM). In addition, a special issue of the African Journal of Laboratory Medicine (AJLM) focused on AMR will be distributed during the conference. ASLM is playing a significant role in the global effort to combat AMR, especially in the arena of laboratory-based AMR surveillance, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, and optimization of laboratory networks to address AMR. Learn how ASLM is supporting African nations in the AMR Global Action Plan in an article by Dr. Rosanna Peeling, Professor and Chair of Diagnostic Research and Director of the International Diagnostics Centre (IDC) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine: Read the article here.
