Pregnant Women Urged To Get HIV Test

Last updated on Tuesday, December 8, 2009

(UNDATED) - The Indiana State Department of Health is asking pregnant women to get tested for HIV.

The "One Test, Two Lives" campaign is an effort to educate women that the disease affects not only the health of a pregnant woman, but also that of her child.

State Health Commissioner Judy Monroe says perinatal transmission is the most common route of HIV infection in children.
