a child is born and is given AZT drug, does that mean the child has HIV?
Response from Dr. Remien
No that does not necessarily mean the child has HIV. Antiviral medications are given to HIV+ women before and during childbirth to help prevent transmission of HIV to the baby; and given to the baby at birth to also help prevent infection.
