We would like to invite women to share their experiences and views, to participate in the virtual consultation, and to forward this information to partners and networks in your countries and/or regions. Your responses to the survey will assist in highlighting women's experiences of and perspectives on gender barriers to accessing effective and comprehensive vertical transmission services, and identifying possible interventions to address these barriers.
