Call to Action End of Project Meeting and Reception
June 17, 2010 - July 19, 2010
Since 2002, the Foundation has been the implementing partner in the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Call to Action (CTA) Project, a multi-country initiative supporting prevention of mother-to-child transmission services (PMTCT) in resource-poor settings. The project, which has funded activities for prevention, care, and treatment services for mothers and their families in 14 countries, will transition to other mechanisms in September, 2010.
To commemorate this flagship program, the Foundation hosted an end of project meeting on June 17 to examine and evaluate CTA results and recommend next steps in PMTCT programming. Representatives from USAID, key organizations implementing PMTCT services, and partners within the HIV/AIDS community shared and discussed their own experiences and lessons learned on best practices and PMTCT’s future role in eliminating HIV/AIDS.
Prior to the meeting, on the evening of June 16, the Foundation hosted a reception in recognition of the CTA project.
