Option B+ is an approach to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV and maintain the health of the mother. It entails initiation of lifelong ART for pregnant and breastfeeding women infected with HIV. If realized and performed effectively, this approach will advance the goal of an AIDS-free generation. Nurses and midwives are of critical importance to the scale-up of Option B+. This online training for Option B+ is designed for self-directed learning by nursing students or practicing professionals but is open to anyone. You can go through each module at your own pace.
