Communicable Diseases Module: 27. Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV
Study Session 27 Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV
As you will recall from Study Session 20, one of the routes of transmission of HIV is from mother to child. This occurs when an HIV-infected woman passes the virus to her baby during pregnancy, during labour and delivery, or during breastfeeding. In this study session, you will learn about prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV.
