The success of antiretroviral therapy in reducing mother-to-child transmission of HIV from around 15-35% to less than 1% has placed it at the forefront of global HIV prevention. Given that 90% of HIV-positive children are infected during pregnancy, labor, or breastfeeding, pregnant women’s treatment uptake and retention is central to reduction of pediatric HIV infection.
