Prevention of mother to child transmission

2.3 million HIV infections were discovered globally. Large part of the population discovered with HIV infection discovered was in their reproductive stage and the men and women diagnosed with HIV were likely to want children. Perinatal transmission of HIV, also called as Vertical Transmission, occurs when HIV is infected from HIV-positive women to her baby during pregnancy, labor and delivery or breastfeeding. The percentage of transmission ranges from 15 to 45% during pregnancy, labor and delivery. The rate of transmission increases to additional 35 to 45% when there is breast feeding by the mother to child. The transmission rate depends on the type of STD and the mode of transfer.
