Considering the achieved successes - perinatal prophylaxis coverage during pregnancy - 91%, in the period of delivery - 95%, newborn chemoprophylaxis - 97%, active use of HAART - 88%, to implement this task is possible by the end of 2015 by consolidating the efforts of all professionals involved in the issues of prevention of HIV transmission from mother to child - infectious diseases physicians, pediatricians, obstetricians, neonatologists and other specialties.
