Resources For Pregnant, HIV-Positive Teens

Last week, NCFY shared several ways for youth-serving organizations to participate in National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on March 10. In the spirit of the day, we’ve rounded up some resources geared toward young, HIV-positive women who find themselves pregnant.

  • AIDSinfo, a service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, offers a series of pregnancy fact sheets with topics ranging from anti-HIV medications to reducing the potential transmission of HIV during labor and delivery.
  • The Center for HIV Law & Policy compiled a two-page list detailing the rights of HIV-positive women seeking medical treatment for their pregnancy.

Programs looking to prevent HIV among teen girls, including expectant mothers, can find evidence-based interventions via the Office of Adolescent Health’s National Resource Center for HIV/AIDS Prevention Among Adolescents.
