To ensure that programs are implemented effectively and provide quality care and services to those they serve, program managers must balance a variety of responsibilities and activities, such as: 

  • Managing logistics and commodities to ensure the supplies needed to provide services are always available
  • Program monitoring and evaluation to assess the strengths, weaknesses, gaps and opportunities for improvment within a program
  • Integrating health services

All of these core functions of PMTCT program management are addressed in this section of the Toolkit.
