Summary A considerable proportion of pregnant women and their infected children are likely to be eligible for anti-retroviral treatment. The antenatal–postnatal divide needs to be bridged with respect to the follow-up of both HIV-infected women and their exposed infants.

Taux de CD4 chez les femmes enceintes infectées par le VIH et leurs enfants infectés - implications pour les PMTCT et programmes de traitement

Une proportion considérable de femmes enceintes et leurs enfants infectés sont susceptibles d’être éligibles pour le traitement antirétroviral (ART). La marge entre prénatal et postnatal devrait être ralliée pour ce qui concerne le suivi des deux femmes infectées par le VIH et leurs enfants en bas âge exposés.
