Maternal Interview

Site staff attempts to contact a woman as soon as possible after a positive HIV screening test in order to solicit consent; however they do wait to conduct the interview until the diagnosis of HIV infection is confirmed. Signed consent from the mother is always obtained prior to interview.


Information gathered includes prior HIV risk, pregnancy, labor and delivery, post-partum care, etc.


All information is de-identified.
