Practice and Provider Resources
Since the HIV epidemic began in the 1980s, the United States has made great strides in reducing the number of annual perinatal infections. However, even one case of perinatal infection is too many. Women living with HIV who take antiretroviral medication during pregnancy as recommended can reduce the risk of transmitting HIV to their babies to 1% or less. Without treatment during pregnancy, risk of transmission from mother to infant is 22%.
One Test. Two Lives. offers obstetric providers information and resources to encourage them to test pregnant women for HIV infection and help reduce the number of infants born with HIV. The One Test. Two Lives. campaign has recently been updated to include the latest CDC recommendations regarding HIV prevention, testing, and treatment options. It now features new tools and resources to help ensure all patients get tested for HIV early in their pregnancy.
Information and Tools for Providers
These resources and tools have been developed to help obstetric providers encourage pregnant women to get tested for HIV as early as possible. The tools contain important HIV prevention messages and information to help raise awareness and encourage patients to get screened.
