Pregnancy and HIV medicines - Pregnancy, part 4
This two-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about pregnancy and HIV medicines. It discusses the use of the HIV medicine pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) by women who are HIV negative to reduce the risk of infection from an HIV positive male partner. The document examines different ways the HIV medicine known as antiretroviral therapy (ART) can reduce the risk of spreading HIV from the HIV positive male partner to his female partner before pregnancy, and from the mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth, and after.
