Perinatal Exposure Surveillance
Perinatal Exposure Surveillance involves collecting information on all HIV-positive women who give birth and their infants to understand how well Perinatal Transmission Prevention Guidelines are being followed. Data are used to monitor HIV Prevention activities.
Perinatal exposure Surveillance was conducted during 2006-2011 for infants born at 7 Regional Perinatal Centers throughout Georgia. This activity was known as Enhanced Perinatal surveillance (EPS).
The most recent EPS activity is examining mother-infant pairs in Georgia (not just for infants born at referral centers). This surveillance began in 2016 and is ongoing.
