HIV - human immunodeficiency virus is still a common cause of death, especially in people of childbearing age. Over the past ten years, there has been a significant increase in pregnancy rates among women infected with this virus. Despite many years of research, there is still no effective therapy for women who want to have children and live with this virus. Over the years, both the generations of HIV tests and their applications have changed. Currently, a routine HIV test is performed on every pregnant woman during her first visit to the gynecologist. The purpose of this screening test is to detect HIV infection in a pregnant woman at an early stage in order to implement appropriate treatment as soon as possible. The main goal of therapy during pregnancy is to reduce the risk of HIV transmission to the developing fetus. The article is a case report of HIV-positive pregnant woman.
