In order to standardize the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of AIDS, syphilis, and hepatitis B and help improve project service level and quality, the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC) in Southwest China's Chongqing held a training session and key case review meeting from Sept 15 to 17.

Nearly 200 people from various districts and counties, including those from the health administration departments' maternal and child (public health) sections, and maternal and child health care institutions, as well as project management personnel, participated in the event.

The opening ceremony was presided over by Tang Xuyan, director of the Division of Maternal and Child Health from the Chongqing Municipal Health Commission.

Li Pan, deputy director of the Chongqing Municipal Health Commission, attended the opening ceremony. He reminded people to gain a clear understanding of the lag in the construction of primary screening laboratories in maternal and child health hospitals in some districts and counties, and urged unity between multiple departments to provide high-quality services and full life-cycle services and strengthen the management of mobile pregnant and lying-in women.

A total of 16 national and municipal experts in the field of MTCT prevention were invited to the training, offering lessons on topics ranging from progress on the prevention of MTCT of AIDS, syphilis, and hepatitis B in Chongqing, to interpretation of relevant implementation plans in the country and the city.

Experts also reviewed three key cases of MTCT of AIDS in Yongchuan district, Fengdu county, and Fuling district.

The event has helped improve the technical skills of medical workers in the city's districts and counties and advanced the city's progress in eliminating MTCT of AIDS, syphilis, and hepatitis B.
