Patterns of caesarean section in HIV infected and non-infected women in Malawi: is caesarean section used for PMTCT?
|Published in||BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth. 2018, vol. 18, no. 1|
|Abstract||The pattern of CS’s in Malawi is largely determined by maternal and infant complications. Positive HIV status was negatively associated with CS delivery, possibly because health care workers were concerned about the risk of occupational HIV transmission and the known increased risk of post-operative complications. Our results leave open the possibility that CS is practiced to prevent MTCT given that ECS was more common among women at high risk of MTCT due to no or short exposure to ARV’s.|
