Coordination mechanisms

Mechanisms are being established through UNAIDS, in close collaboration with UNICEF and WHO, to coordinate and support efforts for accelerated capacity-strengthening and technical development, and to scale up the implementation of interventions to reduce mother to child transmission. These mechanisms will facilitate the exchange of information, mobilise resources, help to coordinate research, and resolve remaining policy, programmatic and technical issues. Key actors are presently discussing the nature and functioning of these coordination mechanisms.
