The study described in this document gathered information on the perspectives, needs, and preferences of women and communities regarding mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. Funded by GlaxoWellcome and UNAIDS, research was conducted between October 1999 - May 2000 in two African countries, Botswana and Zambia. The central goal of the study was to obtain information and data that could be used to improve the effectiveness and acceptability of messages and services for MTCT prevention at the community level. The research was designed to provide insight into the community in which MTCT prevention programs exist, and to thereby contribute to the design of successful strategies.
