The course is adressed to health professionals from all over Spain, specifically to medical staff from the infectious diseases service and rotating residents, as well as resident physicians and physicians in units that sporadically treat HIV and infectious disease patients but are not specialized in them.

Antiretroviral treatment (ART) represents one of the greatest medical successes in history and the most effective measure in preventing vertical transmission (mother-child) of HIV infection. In fact, the introduction of ART in pregnant women has made it possible to reduce the number of new infections in children by 70% since 2000. Thanks to advances in ART, people with HIV infection can now have a quality of life and life expectancy comparable to that of the general population.

The main objective of the conference is to provide health professionals who care for patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Spain with the latest updates on the care and treatment of women with HIV infection and pregnancy desire. Treatment during pregnancy, potential obstetric interventions, and postnatal prophylaxis to reduce the risk of infection in the fetus or newborn will also be discussed. In addition, the latest advances in pre-exposure prophylaxis and lactation recommendations will be presented and discussed.
