In December 2021, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) launched a video docu-story on the Region’s experience with eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV and Syphilis (EMTCT).

The EMTCT docu-story outlined the factors that have contributed to the Caribbean becoming the first Region in the world to advance to the dual elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and Syphilis.  It briefly summarizes how the Ministry of Health, Bahamas was able to transfer knowledge and experience for EMTCT to other Caribbean countries,  allowing for the standardization of the primary prevention and treatment interventions in all Maternal and Child Health services, which had already incorporated Prevention of Syphilis for pregnant women.

The docu-story can be viewed on the PANCAP YouTube Channel:
