hiv infected children reported in the uk
HIV-infected children reported in the UK
  • Children born in the UK to diagnosedwomen
  • Children born in the UK to women who were undiagnosed at the time of delivery
  • Children who were born abroad
data sources 1
Data sources (1)
  • National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC)
    • Surveillance scheme for paediatric and obstetric HIV in the UK and Ireland
  • Confidential, active reporting schemes
    • Pregnancies in diagnosed HIV-infected women (RCOG)
    • Infants born to HIV-infected women (BPSU)
  • Children followed up to establish infection status
    • Uninfected: negative PCR after 1 and 3 months of age or negative antibody test.

  • Audit of Perinatal Transmission of HIV in England 2002-2005
    • Collaboration between the NSHPC, the Audit Information and Analysis Unit for Specialised Services (AIAU), and CHIVA
  • Antenatal testing and maternal diagnosis
  • Pregnancy and HIV management
  • Social circumstances
  • Management of delivery
  • Postnatal details
background births to hiv infected women uk and ireland
Background – births to HIV infected women (UK and Ireland)
  • Over 7500 infants born 2000-2007
  • Rapid increase in diagnoses of HIV in pregnancy since routine screening promoted
  • 1200/year since 2005
uptake of pmtct interventions 2000 2006
Uptake of PMTCT interventions (2000-2006)
  • 97% on ART
    • 85% HAART
    • 13% ZDV mono
  • Of those on HAART
    • 24% before conception

- Concurrent maternal illness / infection

- In utero transmission

perinatal transmission audit 33 infants born to diagnosed women in england 2002 2005
Perinatal Transmission Audit33 infants born to diagnosed women in England, 2002-2005
  • 3 women - labour ward staff were unaware of diagnosis until after delivery
  • 4 women diagnosed within 2 days of delivery
    • 3 recent arrivals/visitors, 2 delivered prematurely
  • 1 confirmed seroconversion in pregnancy
    • 1 other possible seroconversion
33 infants diagnosed women
33 infants / diagnosed women
  • VL>10,000 within 2 weeks of delivery
    • 36% of women
  • In utero transmission
    • 22 infants with early PCR result reported (within 2 days of birth)
    • 50% had evidence of likely in utero transmission
  • Social issues
    • ~ 2/3 of the women had serious problems with immigration status and/or housing
    • or other major social or mental health problems
33 infants diagnosed women1
33 infants / diagnosed women
  • Delays
    • antenatal testing / reporting of results / initiating or changing treatment
  • Lack of communication between/within Trusts
    • laboratory / antenatal / HIV care / labour ward
  • Problems contacting women, women declining care or concealing status
  • Uncertainty about entitlement to free care
33 infants diagnosed women2
33 infants / diagnosed women
  • No transmissions were identified following
    • optimal care and
    • undetectable maternal viral load at delivery
  • Only one woman transmitted despite undetectable viral load at delivery
    • malaria while travelling abroad in early pregnancy
    • baby PCR positive on day 1 (in utero transmission)
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Most transmissions from diagnosed women can be attributed to a combination of factors:
    • Insufficient maternal ART (often due to prem delivery or late presentation/diagnosis)
    • Unplanned delivery
    • High viral load
  • Audit revealed additional factors:
    • In utero transmission  increasing proportion
    • Communication issues
    • Immigration/housing issues
