These guidelines for best practice for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV-1 are intended to provide health workers with information to enable an informed decision on the most appropriate management regimen for HIV-positive pregnant women. Resources and circumstances differ across different practice settings. These guidelines recognise the need for any management strategy to be adapted to the available infrastructure and finance and to the stage of pregnancy and clinical condition of the mother. The various strategies and treatment recommendations for HIV-positive pregnant women are constantly evolving. The guidelines will be updated as and when new information becomes available.
