Abstract: Maternal and child health (MCH) services are critical for prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT). Throughout Vietnam, HIV-positive pregnant women and mothers are increasingly using these services to access HIV care and treatment for themselves and their children. But while ethnic-majority Kinh women use such services frequently, use of MCH services among Vietnam’s 53 ethnic minority groups is low.
