Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection remains a significant public health problem in the developing and developed world alike. Infants born to mother who are infected with HIV are at risk of acquiring the infection, and vertical transmission is the main method by which infants are infected. For these reasons it is of vital importance that these infants at risk are identified at earliest and appropriate prophylaxis commenced. We explore the current guidelines for prevention of transmission in neonates born to HIV-1 positive mother.
