Clinician Panel

One Test. Two Lives. has brought together a group of experts across the country in fields related to perinatal HIV transmission to form a clinician panel dedicated to spreading the campaign message of the importance of testing all pregnant women for HIV. Members not only speak at local, regional, or national conferences and association meetings, but they are dedicated to helping CDC reduce the number of babies born with HIV by communicating with other health care providers who can benefit from the campaign's message and materials. Their support helps CDC share the important message of testing all pregnant women for HIV.

Consultant Workgroup members are volunteers promoting the goals of the One Test. Two Lives. campaign. Their work in the field of perinatal and pediatric HIV prevention enhances the campaign goals but is not directly supported by CDC.
