The NSHPC is happy to announce our latest findings on mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) rates in the UK and Ireland from 0.46% in 2010-11 to 0.27% in 2012-14. World AIDS Day (annually held on the first of December) provides an opportunity to reflect on the successes and challenges within the HIV community. Since our last report in 2014, we have observed a decline in the vertical transmission of HIV which demonstrates quality treatment and care before, during and after pregnancy to all women living with HIV and their children.
