PHFS-HIV Free survival project

Principal Investigator


World Health Organization


The Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS) was conceived by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to accelerate the adoption and implementation by countries of the WHO 2010 guidelines, with the ultimate goal of increasing HIV- free survival. The six-country initiative is supporting current national efforts to improve PMTCT, maternal and infant care, and nutrition support for HIV-positive women and their exposed infants. The member countries are Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.
