A program known as PMTCT which contains three measures is carried out to prevent this occurrence.

The study was a descriptive-observational-retrospective type with a cross-sectional design employing a 41 expectant mothers with a positive HIV who underwent a treatment in a hospitals of Dr. Soetomo Surabaya during the period of January 2008 till May 2011. The results of the study revealed that all expectant mothers with HIV-positive followed the PMTCT program with several differences in the consumption of ARV. The foremost infections detected are Candidiasis oris and most CD4 count of the expectant mothers with HIV-positive is under 500 cells/mm3. Nearly all mothers with HIV-positive delivered their babies using SC method and all mothers with HIV-positive which are observed in this study do not breastfeed their babies.
