    29. 29. Rationale for PPTCT in India 27 million pregnancies per year 1,62,000 infected pregnancies Cohort of 55,425 infected newborns per year 0.6% prevalence 30% transmission Most of these children die within 2-5 years
    30. 30. Natural History of HIV Infection
    31. 31. Natural History of HIV Infection <ul><li>Virus can be transmitted during each stage </li></ul><ul><li>Seroconversion </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Infection with HIV, antibodies develop </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Asymptomatic </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No signs of HIV, immune system controls virus production </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Symptomatic </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Physical signs of HIV infection, some immune suppression </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>AIDS </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Opportunistic infections, end-stage disease </li></ul></ul></ul>
    32. 32. Natural History of HIV Infection <ul><li>Immune suppression </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV attacks white blood cells,called CD4 cells, that protect body from illness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Over time, the body’s ability to fight common infections is lost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Opportunistic infections occur </li></ul></ul>
    33. 33. HIV Disease <ul><li>Progression of HIV disease is measured by: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CD4+ count </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Degree of immune suppression </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lower CD4+ count means decreasing immunity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viral load </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Amount of virus in the blood </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Higher viral load means more immune suppression </li></ul></ul></ul>
    34. 34. HIV Disease <ul><li>Severity of illness is determined by amount of virus in the body (increasing viral load) and the degree of immune suppression (decreasing CD4+ counts) </li></ul><ul><li>Higher the viral load, the sooner immune suppression occurs </li></ul>
    35. 35. Progression of HIV Infection <ul><li>HIGH viral load (number of copies of HIV in the blood) </li></ul><ul><li>LOW CD4 count (type of white blood cell) </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing clinical symptoms (such as opportunistic infections) </li></ul>
    36. 36. HIV Disease <ul><li>Direct infection of organ systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV can directly infect the: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Brain (HIV dementia) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gut (wasting) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Heart (cardiomyopathy) </li></ul></ul>

    38. 38. HIV Disease : Summary <ul><ul><li>HIV multiplies inside the CD4+ cells, destroying them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As CD4+ cell count decreases and viral load increases, the immune defences are weakened </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV-infected people become vulnerable to opportunistic infections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV is a chronic viral infection with no known cure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Without ARV treatment, HIV progresses to symptomatic disease and AIDS </li></ul></ul>
    39. 39. Module 1: Key Points <ul><ul><li>HIV is a global pandemic and the number of people living with HIV continues to increase worldwide. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV epidemic is especially severe in resource-constrained settings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV is a virus that destroys the immune system, leading to opportunistic infections. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The progression from initial infection with HIV to end-stage AIDS varies from person to person and can take more than 10 years. </li></ul></ul>
    40. 40. Module 1: Key Points (continued) <ul><ul><li>The most common main route of transmission worldwide is heterosexual transmission. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Women of childbearing age are at particular risk for acquiring HIV through unprotected sex with an infected male partner. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HIV-positive women who are pregnant are at risk of passing HIV infection to their newborn. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Risk of HIV transmission from mother-to-child can be greatly reduced through effective PPTCT programs </li></ul></ul>
