  1. HIV disease in pregnancy : Ethics, law, and policy.

    Article - En anglais

    Legal and ethical principles mandate that informed consent be an integral element of HIV-related education, counseling, testing, treatment, and intervention.

    Minimizing patient counseling and education (for economic reasons or otherwise) is likely to backfire.

    The presumption that a parent will act in her child's best interest, accepted in analogous contexts, should be foundational in the development of HIV policy in the obstetric and gynecologic setting.

    Most women, when provided with counseling, care, and confidentiality, consent to prenatal or perinatal testing and, most important, engage their families in HIV-related care and services.

    Because of the changing terrain of knowledge about and treatments of HIV disease, providers must thoroughly counsel women regarding the risks and benefits of available treatment and intervention.
