Abstract

The HIV epidemic in Pakistan has now transmitted to female spouses of HIV-positive injection drug users (IDUs) and bisexual men, and to preadolescent children through vertical transmission. Owing to sociocultural barriers, HIV-infected pregnant women and children do not have optimum access to treatment, hindering the prevention of HIV transmission.
