Effective Control and Eventual Elimination of Hepatitis B: A Strategic Focus

“Innovative Partnerships for High Impact Outcomes" international iPMTCT summit [Hainan, 2014]

GO BACK TO MAP

In partnership with the Hainan Bureau of Health and China's National Center for Women and Children’s Health, ZeShan organized an international roundtable summit on the Integrated Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (iPMTCT) of HIV, HBV and syphilis in Hainan Province in January 2014.

Focusing on public-private partnerships and innovative practices for high-impact outcomes, the Summit brought together a blue-ribbon panel of experts, scholars, practitioners, policy makers, and representatives from major health organizations, such as WHO China, WHO Western Pacific Region, UNICEF, UNAIDS, Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center, and Chinese Center for Disease.

Participants shared lessons learnt and best practices, and debated over the unique challenges of effectively implementing iPMTCT in culturally and demographically diverse settings. Prompted by Hainan’s relatively low HIV prevalence and very high HBV rate (over twice the national average), discussion inevitably tilted toward exploring effective PMTCT of HBV.

Following the Summit in Sanya, participants went on a field trip to visit local maternal and children’s hospitals and clinics in townships and villages. Local health officials and practitioners shared their experiences and views on the healthcare system, in particular effective approaches to iPMTCT operation in low HIV and high HBV settings.
 
One of the “by-products” of the Summit was that at the coordinating committee meeting of UN health-related organizations in China, held the week following the Hainan Summit, the UN China network agreed to promote China’s iPMTCT practice around the world as innovative practice.
