The United Nations Joint Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), under the SIDA H4+ initiative, has been working with the National AIDS Commission (NAC) to undertake strategies aimed at "Creating Demand for PMTCT Services”, that is, linking 189 communities with 15 health facilities in River Gee, Maryland and Grand Kru Counties. Key components of this community mobilization effort include the holding of public discussions with community members on PMTCT related issues, printing and distribution of IEC materials, and community sensitization by community based organizations in the three counties.  The three community based organizations (CBOs) selected in the three counties respectively to carry out the community/social mobilization activities include Family of Hope (FOH) for River Gee County; Assistance for Providing AIDS (APA) in Maryland County, and Resource Center for Community Empowerment and Integrated Development (RECEIVE) in Grand Kru Counties.
