Management of HIV-1 in pregnancy has reduced the mother-to-child-transmission (MTCT) rate from 25-30% to <2% in the developed world, including Ireland. In Ireland most HIV positive pregnant women are diagnosed through antenatal screening many of whom arrive here late in pregnancy. Geographic dispersal and subsequent involvement of obstetric units throughout the country has resulted in a need for clear, accessible management guidelines. The Irish Infection Society first published guidelines for the management of HIV-1 in pregnancy in 2001 (1). The updated guidelines became operational in January 2002 with some amendments in March 2003 and July 2004. These guidelines offer a broad management outline for HIV positive pregnant women. Ultimately, each woman is assessed individually by a multidisciplinary team and a careful plan is determined.
