Program to Improve the Prevention of Mother-to-child HIV Transmission Within Vulnerable Communities in India NEW DELHI, December 1, 2016/PRNewswire/ — New Partnership With Solidarity and Action Against The HIV Infection in India (SAATHII) Aims to Address Major HIV Knowledge Gaps Amongst Pregnant Women in the States of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Janssen, the pharmaceutical companies of Johnson & Johnson, today announced that Connect for Life(TM), a comprehensive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Disease Management Program, has been launched in partnership with Solidarity and Action Against The HIV Infection in India (SAATHII), a non-governmental organization working to strengthen HIV prevention, care, support and treatment interventions in India.
As part of the Connect for Life(TM) program, Janssen will support the development of m-Maitri , an initiative to educate pregnant women on techniques to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission. Based on the stage of their pregnancy, women will receive tailored voice messages to their mobile phones offering general advice and support on pregnancy as well as specific information about being pregnant and HIV positive.
“Through Connect for Life(TM)’s support for m-Maitri, we are looking to close some significant knowledge gaps that put many children at risk of being infected with HIV,” said Dr Randeep Gill, Disease Management Programs Leader, Janssen, on the Connect for Life (TM) initiative.
“By connecting directly with mothers, the m-Maitri platform offers a discreet way to share potentially lifesaving information. Through our partnership with SAATHII, we will work to ensure that accurate, up-to-date information is available and accessible to support these women throughout their pregnancy and beyond.”
