In a cohort study of women of childbearing age in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, we followed 473 HIV-infected women for 1551 person-years, and found that the incidence of pregnancy and livebirth decreased with decreasing CD4 cell counts. This has consequences in terms of scaling-up strategies for highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Women who need HAART will be less likely than those who do not to be recruited into prenatal care facilities.
