The reduction in perinatal transmission of HIV infection in the United States from 1985 to 2005 was noted as an achievement in public health by the MMWR Weekly (June 2, 2006/55(21);592-597).
Given the enormous advances in the prevention of perinatal transmission of HIV,it is clear that early identification and treatment of all pregnant women with human immunodeficiency virus is the best way to prevent neonatal disease.
The Perinatal HIV Prevention Program offers training and technical assistance on the process to implement rapid HIV testing in the labor and delivery unit. This service is available, free of charge,to any delivering hospital in Florida.
