    Negitter Nachipo is a peer mother at the Thyolo District Hospital in Malawi. Peer mothers are counsellors to women in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) program. "I can do this job well because I have had the same experiences as the patients. There was a time I was pregnant and I am also HIV-positive. I went through all the stages that helped me prevent infecting my child." When a pregnant mother is on effective treatment, the HIV transmission rate to her child drops from up to 40% to less than 5%. However, not all women have access to testing and treatment. MSF teams support more than 341,600 people on antiretroviral treatment in over 20 countries. In late 2013, MSF handed over the PMTCT program in Thyolo to Malawi’s health system.

                    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session began with Lim's discussion on the voucher system in Cambodia and how they organize, identify, and distribute those vouchers. Lim also showed how the use of vouchers increased uptake in use of services and how they contributed towards the reduction of morbidity. Yoshimura presented JICA's work in Bangladesh where they implemented a Safe Motherhood Promotion Project. Results included increased ANC rates as well as increased deliveries in institutions and with skilled attendants. Barnighausen's study sought to learn more about how to increase ANC visits (especially in regards to PMTCT) by using Community Health Workers in Tanzania. They found that CHW visits were well-accepted from the community and that it can be easily absorbed into work that is already done at the community level.
