Abstract The study had as objective to analyze the prenatal care services offered by the East District's primary healthcare network of the city of Belo Horizonte as well as actions for the prevention of vertical transmission of HIV. It discussed the still significant rates of transmission of HIV in the presence of appropriate technologies for its prevention. Barriers directly related to problems in the early uptake of pregnant women and the institution of appropriate therapy in time were identified through univariate descriptive analysis considering Sisprenatal and Sinan databases. The involvement of managers and the training of professionals are essential for the correct direction of actions that enable the effective prevention of vertical transmission of HIV.
