This brief focuses on the following key points:

  • HIV-positive women can transmit HIV to their infants during pregnancy, childbirth, or while breastfeeding.
  • Providing HIV prevention, care and treatment within existing maternal and child health services dramatically improves their uptake, improving maternal health and reducing mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
