  • BUDGET ANALYSIS PROGRAMME 3: HIV AND AIDS, TB, MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH KEY POINTS The Womens Maternal and Reproductive Health sub- programme is responsible for amongst other interventions, deploying obstetric ambulances, establishing Kangaroo Mother Care facilities, midwifery education and training, and strengthening infant feeding practices.

  • Slide 17
  • BUDGET ANALYSIS PROGRAMME 3: HIV AND AIDS, TB, MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH KEY POINTS The Child, Youth and School Health sub-programme develops and monitors policies and guidelines, and sets norms and standards for child health. The budget increases from R17 million to R218.4 million. This is mainly due to roll-out of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine which prevents cervical cancer, to be provided to Grade 4 girls. Over the medium term, key initiatives will be the continued rollout of the integrated school health programme to cover all learning phases, and strengthening the immunisation programme. Empirical evidence shows that South Africa has managed to reduce child mortality in the last five years. This is a positive outcome emanating from the scale-up of prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, the rollout of antiretroviral therapy, new child vaccines (pneumococcus and rotavirus) and other child survival programmes. 17
