Background Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of human immune virus (HIV), syphilis, and hepatitis B can lead to significant health burdens and even mortality in children. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of triple elimination of MTCT in a secondary hospital in Buleleng, North Bali
Method: This study conducted a retrospective review of 345 pregnancy case in Buleleng General Hospital from January to December 2022
Result: In this study, 98.5% of the 345 pregnant women seeking antenatal care were tested for HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B. Among the tested patients, 100%, 99.7%, and 98.8% were tested for HIV and hepatitis B, HIV and syphilis, and syphilis and hepatitis B, respectively. The prevalence of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B was 1.4%, 2.1%, and 4.3 %, respectively. Antiretroviral therapy was administered to 80 % of HIV-positive patients, and 71.4 % of syphilis patients received benzathine penicillin G. Only 6.6% of hepatitis B patients received hepatitis B virus deoxyribonucleic acid (HBV DNA) & hepatitis B envelope antigen (HBeAg) examination followed by Lamivudine administration.
Conclusion: Early detection of HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis B in pregnant women is important for preventing MTCT. Coverage of triple elimination screening is in accordance with WHO targets, but further management of hepatitis B needs to be improved
