Abstract

The Canadian Medical Association says that routine HIV testing of pregnant women is necessary because there are still babies being born with HIV infection. Critics respond that routine testing is the same as mandatory testing, that there is no reason to waive the requirement for informed consent accompanied by pre-test counselling, and that physicians need to do a better job of offering HIV testing to pregnant women.
