HIV Prevention & Transmission  
Louise Kuhn, M.P.H. Revisiting Priorities in the Prevention of Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission
In a talk focusing largely on the developing world, Louise Kuhn, M.P.H., drives home the importance of antiretroviral therapy for all pregnant or breastfeeding women with a CD4+ cell count below 350. She also urges a greater focus on long-term child health and survival, beyond simply preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission. (From The Body PRO)
