Updating the EMTCT Community of Practice

1 month 2 weeks ago
Dear Community of Practice Members,

In an effort to better serve the diverse community of HIV professionals, we are consolidating the various HIV-related website and communities managed by UNICEF down to one central resource center - ChildrenandAIDS.org and one community of practice.

Although each of the existing resources has proven useful, now more than ever efforts to integrate HIV prevention, care and treatment are needed. Combining our communities to one should make it easier for all of us to stay informed and simpler to share resources. We hope that these platforms will serve as a learning collaborative for our members and active users.

The best part is that the migration will be easy. The new website will go live in a few days. Users of the current EMTCT community will continue to login to the CoP as usual. They will not have to change anything. Members of the other communities will be asked to joined the new centralized community and they need only login using their current username and password.

Here is a tentative schedule for the migration (Please note that will also be available to help you should any issues arrive)

June 12th: Information of the coming change sent to all communities.
June 16th: EMTCT site rebranded to describe the new community and reminders sent to all communities.
June 19th: New members added to the combined community.

If you benefit from being a part of our community, please let us know and tell a colleague!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Jessica at jerodrigues@unicef.org and copy jdawson@unicef.org<mailto:jdawson@unicef.org>


Best,
Jessica

ACT Initiative Lessons Learned: Webinar Wrap Up

1 month 2 weeks ago
Dear Jessica,

Greetings from Brazil with hope to find you well,

Thank you kindly for your e-mail with the links of the power point from the
webinar of 23rd May 2017. I was glad to attend the webinar when I had
chance to send two questions and one comments. My both questions were well
answered however related to my comments to Dr. Gottfried Hirnschall
(Director HIV Department and Global Hepatiris Program) was not successfull
- I'm still awaiting for the reply but maybe we'll need of your
intervention. I asked Dr.Hirnschall to review the outdated recommendation
on *"Infant Feeding in the context of HIV" , for instance, *on page
xxxiii at the *"WHO 2016 Consolidated Guidelines on The Use of
Antiretroviral Drugs for Treating and Preventing HIV Infection" .
*Consequently,
the reference adopted at the Consolidate Guidelines for HIV and Infant
Feeding was the *"Guideline on HIV and infant feeding 2010"* rather than
the *"Guideline Updates on HIV and Infant Feeding 2016". *In fact, this
kind of missinformation is a desaster for health professionals that use the
"Consolidate Guidelines" to support practice in the field of HIV and infant
feeding / MNCH. Few months ago I send several e-mails to Dr. Nigel Rollins
that has promissed to fix it. Also, in person with Dr. Laurence
Grummer-Strawn from WHO Geneva at a conference in Penang I requested the
revision, however without any success.

Find the "WHO 2016 Consolidated Guidelines on The Use of Antiretroviral
Drugs for Treating and Preventing HIV Infection" that I dowload from the
WHO website


http://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/10665/208825/1/9789241549684_eng.pdf?ua=1 on
1st June 2017 at 9:53 am Brazilia time.

In addition, I would like to suggest you that every webinar you include a
discussion on i*nfant feeding in the HIV context*. It's a subject that's
becoming more and more neglected by even professionals from UN agencies
such as WHO and UNICEF. For instance, last year (November 2016) at the Baby
Friendly Hospital Initiative Congress conducted by WHO the issue HIV and
breastfeeding (a BFHI global criteria) was poorly mentioned. On the other
hand, most of the participants from Sub-Saharan África are highly
interested on the issues related to HIV and breastfeeding - however, they
become disappointed as that hot topic is quite never mentioned. So, in
every discussion on HIV and AIDS needs to include *"Infant feeding in the
context of HIV". *Even policy makers, Ministry of Health, researchers
or coordinators from countries needs re-inforcement on up-to-date
information about HIV and breastfeeding that can influence positively in
terms of infant survival in their countries.

In addition, I would like to introduce you to my colleague Ms. Pamela
Morrison, who has worked extensively for decades to promoting the most
up-to-date information around the world on HIV and breastfeeding.

Look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

With regards,

Regina Da Silva, BSc, RN, Cert. Dipl, MSc

Senior Researcher and Independent Global Health Consultant
