Retrospective cohort study.
New York State Medicaid program.
2607 HlV-infected women who delivered a living child between January 1993 and September 1996.
Adjusted odds of being prescribed antiretroviral treatment in the second or third trimester for women who delivered in period 1 (during the trial [January 1993 to February 1994]), period 2 (after the trial's end and announcement of the results to publication of the results [March 1994 to November 1994]), and period 3 (after publication of the trial results [December 1994 to September 1996]). Results : The adjusted odds of being prescribed antiretroviral therapy increased 21% per month in period 2 and decreased to 3% per month in period 3. In all time periods, the adjusted odds of being prescribed antiretroviral therapy were at least 60% greater (P<0.05) for women who were treated at an institution that performed HIV clinical trials, received HlV-focused ambulatory care, or had adequate prenatal care visits.
