In developing countries, about one-third or one-fourth of babies born to HIV-infected mothers are born with HIV themselves, most of whom got infected during pregnancy or at child birth. Thus the risk of mother-to-child HIV transmission seems to be great. Adequate zinc status is critical for immune function. Reduced zinc level has been reported in HIV-infected adults, associated with HIV progression.
