The purpose of the seminar is to inform OB/GYN residents and midwifery students about the HIV epidemic, its impact on pregnant women, the benefits of HIV testing during pregnancy, and the prevention of perinatal transmission. The seminar also includes several case studies to engage residents and midwifery in real-time discussions about practical applications related to prenatal HIV screening and course of action/treatment.
