Between April and June 2011, 486 facilities in Malawi were providing PMTCT at ANC and/or maternity.
7,524 (85%) of 8,525 women attending ANC who were known to be HIV positive received ARVs. This
represents 40% PMTCT coverage among the estimated 18,210 HIV positive pregnant women in
Malawi during this quarter. 5,804 (94%) of 6,172 infants born to known HIV infected mothers at
maternity received ARV prophylaxis. This represents 32% PMTCT coverage among the estimated
18,210 HIV exposed infants born in Malawi during this quarter.
Based on the expected number of women attending ANC each quarter, this report is estimated to be
80% complete. Several sites had not submitted their reports despite all attempts to chase up
outstanding data in the passive reporting system that is used up to now. It is hoped that integrated
PMTCT/ART supervision covering all PMTCT sites will improve this situation from next quarter.
