Abstract

Women enrolled in prenatal care at Grady Health System, Atlanta, GA, have routinely been offered HIV counseling and voluntary testing since 1987. Consistently >90% have accepted testing. With implementation of US Public Health Service guidelines for perinatal zidovudine prophylaxis in 1994, the mother-to-child HIV transmission rate rapidly decreased from 18% to 8% during the subsequent 2 years.
