Promising results from INSPIRE Project, a Midterm Review Findings reveal
Abuja, 02 September 2015: A midterm review to assess the performance of two implementation research projects supported by WHO in Nigeria and implemented by the Centre for Integrated Health Program (CIHP) and Institute of Human Virology, Nigeria (IHVN) has ended in Nigeria’s capital Abuja with promising results. The two projects which are known as INSPIRE (INtegrating and Scaling up Pmtct through Implementation REsearch) is a collaboration between the World Health Organization and Ministries of Health in Nigeria, Malawi and Zimbabwe and funded by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development (DFATD).
The 5-year projects which commenced in 2012 are aimed at examining whether Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) has the potential to increase Prevention of Mother To Child Transmission (PMTCT) uptake and retention of HIV-positive pregnant and breastfeeding women (LJM) and determining the impact of Mentor Mother Programs on PMTCT Service uptake and retention.
