National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood
The National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC) is an
active reporting scheme for pregnancies in women living with HIV, babies
born to women living with HIV and other children diagnosed with HIV in
both the UK and Ireland.
The NSHPC Team look forward to seeing our respondents this year at the 2018 CHIVA conference at the Friends House in London on the 2nd of March. Our recent work about children who are lost to follow up will be featured this year in addition to collaborative research with CHIPS on the cascade of care for children with HIV (see further details below).

We are pleased to announce that findings from the NSHPC audit of perinatal HIV transmissions occurring in the UK 2006-2013 have been published in HIV Medicine. Over 100 children born since 2006 were reported and two-thirds were born to undiagnosed women. Difficulty in ART adherence and engagement, adverse social situations and incident infections in pregnancy were highlighted as key factors. Findings have been fed into national guidelines and standards.
