    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 Improving the quality of care for HIV positive women can be measured in a variety of different ways. The first 20 minutes of the video has bad audio quality. Mitchell's presentation skips immediately to results that key quality indicators monitoring patient retention, TB screening, clinical monitoring for ART toxicity, and CD4 monitoring did not have an effect on maternal mortality. Sando described the difference between Option A versus Option B and the performance level and feasibility of each option. Ngarina's work in Tanzania on the Mitra Plus PMTCT study showed gain in 2 years maternal survival as compared to short-term ART. Kiwelu focused on female bar and hotel workers in Moshi, Tanzania with high HIV-1 infection rates and multiple subtypes co-circulating within this population.
