In order to be successfully implemented, some interventions to prevent vertical transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) will require prior identification of HIV‐infected women. The testing and counselling of pregnant women should therefore be promoted. Promoting testing and counselling within prenatal clinics would be a good strategy; however, additional data on the social and economic implications of HIV testing are needed to demonstrate the relevance of such a strategy. Promotion of testing and counselling should be developed in collaboration with community‐based organizations, non‐governmental organizations and people living with HIV, in order to increase the involvement and understanding of the community at large.
