Commenting on the report, Professor Baron Peter Piot said "It's an impressive piece of work on what sounds like a simple issue, but is actually an incredibly complex challenge...

Professor David Ross outlined some of the key achievements of the Evidence for Action programme. Dr Deborah Watson-Jones then summarised findings from research in Kenya and Tanzania on missed opportunities for women identified HIV-positive in prevention of mother-to-child transmission programmes.
