Funding brief: This challenge is seeking replicable innovations at a local level which can speed up the progress being made to reach the super-fast-track target to reduce new HIV infections in children to less than 40,000 by 2018 and 20,000 by 2020.
New infections in children can be reduced if they and their mothers have timely access to antiretroviral drugs, infant prophylaxis and early infant diagnosis.

● It demonstrates how clinics are collaborating with communities to provide a comprehensive response including reaching hard to reach families and those not accessing care
● It is making progress towards reaching the super-fast track 95-95-95 targets, including baseline (within 3 years and current)
● It can be replicated elsewhere
● It is sustainable
