Perinatal use of Zidovudine, AZT and other treatments has reduced the rate of HIV-infected infants to an average 300 per year in developed nations; in emerging nations, 1800 infants are born at risk of HIV every day. A future generation of HIV infections can be prevented by delivering known interventions at more culture-specific levels. This volume combines the proceedings of the two conferences with that aim. The Global Conference on the Prevention of AIDS Transmissions from Mothers to Infants concentrated on social, political, and cultural forces in the epidemiology of HIV. A satellite conference focused on the clinical aspects of maternofoetal, infant and paediatric AIDS. The summary proceedings offer to international health agencies models for realistic intervention programmes for the areas of the world that are most at risk.
