Prenatal HIV Screening in a U.S. HIV Epicenter


To reduce perinatal vertical transmission, the CDC and ACOG have published guidelines for HIV screening in pregnancy for individuals residing in high-HIV prevalence areas. Data on providers' adherence to these recommendations in patient populations at risk in the US are lacking. To assess whether HIV testing for pregnant patients was done in accordance with recommendations in a sizable metropolitan tertiary care hospital in South Florida. 1270 prenatal and intrapartum records from mothers who nascency delivered at one facility were retrospectively. Arithmetic means and standard deviations were used to chart abstract and analyse demographic and outcome data. 1270 patients who met the inclusion criteria were included.
