MNYANI, C N et al. Timing of antenatal care and ART initiation in HIV-infected pregnant women before and after introduction of NIMART. South. Afr. j. HIV med. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.2, pp.55-56. ISSN 2078-6751.
In this review of routinely collected data from five community health centres in the Johannesburg Health District, we assess timing of antenatal care and antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation in HIV-infected pregnant women before and after the introduction of nurse-initiated management of ART in antenatal clinics. There are important lessons to be learnt as we reflect on the South African prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV programme.
