Working to Eliminate Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV
While New York State has had a significant decline in the number of HIV-exposed births, there are still approximately 500 HIV-positive women who deliver HIV-exposed newborns each year. In 2010, the AIDS Institute assembled an advisory panel of HIV-positive women and experts with expertise in caring for HIV-positive women and their children. Their goal was to develop recommendations to further eliminate, and eventually eradicate, mother-to-child transmission of HIV in New York State.
From these recommendations, the AIDS Institute developed a New York State Strategic Plan for Elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV, as well as a companion User Guide. Click here to read both documents – and for more information on this effort.
