Abstract

There has been considerable debate about the effects of targeted global health assistance in low- and middle-income countries on health systems, specifically HIV/AIDS funding. Recently, a handful of studies have emerged that describe the implementation of PMTCT programs, which have many theoretical links to maternal and child health. Through a systematic review of research published between January 2000 and March 2011, this paper synthesizes evidence evaluating the impact of these programs. We assessed 5,855 papers, reviewed 154, and included 21 articles. They offer evidence of beneficial synergies between PMTCT programs and both STI prevention and early childhood immunization. Other data, including information about antenatal and delivery care, family planning, and nutrition supplementation varied considerably across studies demonstrating both positive and negative effects of PMTCT. More research is needed to allow countries and funders to make informed decisions regarding allocation of limited funds to targeted versus broad categories of health care.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 August 2013.
All research outputs
#6,650,899
of 12,321,014 outputs
Outputs from AIDS & Behavior
#1,200
of 2,338 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#118,587
of 283,286 outputs
Outputs of similar age from AIDS & Behavior
#34
of 93 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,321,014 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,338 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.5. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 283,286 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 56% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 93 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
