Abstract

Background: Despite the availability of prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) services, many factors and reasons prevent mothers from accessing these services. HIV prevalence is still high among South African women of reproductive age and mother-to-child-transmission (MTCT) is a concern. This study ascertained the perspectives of healthcare workers regarding availability and accessibility of the PMTCT programme.
