The HIV/AIDS section’s activities are in line with the Accelerated Child Survival & Development (ACSD) strategy. This strategy involves a number of integrated, combined and accelerated interventions with a high impact on the reduction of under five mortality. Among others, it aims to meet the Millennium Development Goal 6 by 2015.
Counseling and voluntary HIV testing will be part of the re-focused prenatal consultation package that UNICEF Côte d’Ivoire intends to implement in more than half of the country’s health districts. This package proposes that each woman who comes for a prenatal consultation be sensitized on HIV testing. HIV-positive pregnant women will receive assistance as part of the PMTCT package. This package includes pediatric assistance, assistance for mothers and fathers, food assistance for newborns, and ARV treatment for mothers and newborns.
At the same time, UNICEF carries on prevention activities on HIV/AIDS among adolescents and young people, as well as assistance to orphans and other vulnerable children, and victims of sexual violence.
