Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has become an essential global health issue and its elimination is a crucial target. A prenatal "opt-out" HIV screening program was initiated in 2005 in Taiwan. In recent 3 years, approximate screening and MTCT rates were 99% and 2.27% (1/44), respectively. Here, we describe the clinical management of mothers infected with HIV and MTCT rate at National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH), Taipei, Taiwan, in the years after the program was initiated.
