The HHS Panel on Treatment of HIV-Infected Pregnant Women and Prevention of Perinatal Transmission has released updates to its Recommendations for Use of Antiretroviral Drugs in Pregnant HIV-1-Infected Women for Maternal Health and Interventions to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission in the United States.
