New UK guidelines: Management of HIV infection in pregnant women (2012)




 

The new guidelines for the management of HIV during pregnancy, the first revision since 2008, will help enable more HIV positive women to have a similar experience in childbirth as women who are HIV negative.

The overall purpose of these guidelines is to provide guidance on best clinical practice in the treatment and management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive pregnant women in the UK.

The guidelines are aimed at clinical professionals directly involved with, and responsible for, the care of pregnant women with HIV infection.
