Supporting Triple Elimination

Elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B in Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste (STEPT Project).

Supporting Triple Elimination

Dates: 2022 - Ongoing

STEPT is a collaborative partnership between ASHM’s Global Program and the Catholic Church Health Services (CCHS) in Papua New Guinea and Maluk Timor in Timor-Leste and national Ministries of Health. The program aims to achieve ‘Triple Elimination’ by developing health worker capacity to test, treat and vaccinate at birth while strengthening services within selected facilities.

STEPT  will: 

  • Deliver training and knowledge exchange forums between countries 
  • Providing training in triple elimination for health workers
  • clinical mentoring at selected health facilities 
  • Strengthen existing monitoring and surveillance systems to promote quality reporting

STEPT is part of a global effort to achieve triple elimination and improve the lives of women, children and families. 

Mother-to-child transmission of HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B is largely preventable through testing, treatment and vaccination at birth.
