Title of Collaborative Activity:

NIH-PEPFAR PMTCT Implementation Science Alliance

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Using the NIH/President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Collaboration for Advancing Implementation Science in Prevention of Maternal-Child HIV Transmission (PMTCT) request for applications (RFA) as a platform, the NIH-PEPFAR PMTCT Implementation Science Alliance promotes collaboration between implementation science researchers and program implementers and policy makers on the ground. Basing this work on actual implementation research issues rather than hypothetical examples, this project is providing a unique function, serving as the “connective tissue” over 2 years for the PIs and collaborators and program implementers on the ground. In this capacity, the Alliance is creating a forum for the network of grantees, PMTCT implementers, and policy-makers on a regular basis enabling cross-fertilization of ideas, insights and experiences as the research and the field progress.
