dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate care rendered to HIV positive women and their infants during the first six weeks of postpartum. Quantitative, descriptive, cross sectional and analytic study was conducted to investigate postnatal care services provided to HIV positive mothers. Data collection was done using structured questionnaires. 372 respondents participated in the study. Descriptive data analysis was used; Epi info version 3.5.2 software was used. The study highlighted that the quality of PNC was compromised, in all levels including the critical immediate postnatal care, 3-14 days and 6 weeks postnatal care services. All health facilities that were involved in the study had the basic resources to render quality postnatal care. Negative attitudes of staff and long waiting time (16.7%), were the most deterrents to postnatal care. en
