Working together to improve health outcomes for women with HIV and their babies
Helen Peters is the manager of the screening surveillance team at the UCL Great Ormond Street, Institute of Child Health. She has day to day involvement with all the National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC) respondents, as well as overseeing the expansion and transition of the screening surveillance service. This builds on her experience developed during her time working as part of the NSHPC.
The National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood is pleased to report that the HIV vertical transmission rate among diagnosed women receiving antenatal care in the UK and Ireland remained below 0.3% between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016.
I’m the study co-ordinator and statistician for the National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC).
