National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood
The National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC) is a surveillance study which collects data on pregnant women living with HIV and their children in the UK and Ireland.
Largest study to date on operative vaginal delivery and invasive procedures in pregnancies among women living with HIV
The NSHPC recently published an article in European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Biology providing an up-to-date picture of invasive procedures in pregnancies among women living with HIV. Findings from this comprehensive national study are reassuring but numbers are currently low; on-going monitoring is crucial as obstetric care of women with HIV becomes normalised.

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.
