This supplement to the September 2007 issue (197) of AJOG provides a range of articles on prevention of mother-to-child transmission. The articles cover uses of antenatal HIV surveillance data for program evaluation and the current recommendations for perinatal antiretroviral treatment and prevention in the U.S. and in low-resource settings. This supplement also addresses the scaling up of perinatal prevention efforts, and their integration with treatment and care of HIV-infected mothers and infants. Additionally, two articles touch on current concerns about infant feeding and diagnosis in low-resource settings. Links to these articles are listed below under related resources.
