HIV positive pregnancy and nutrition


Background: If an HIV-positive woman becomes pregnant, certain complementary nutritional considerations must be justified, since pregnant women with HIV have greater needs to promote a healthy outcome. This review aims to provide information on HIV and pregnancy, nutrition, and infection, and how care and environment can be improved for these HIV positive women.
Results: The search yielded a total of 120 articles, of which 102 were excluded by title, abstract, or year of publication. In total, as a result of this search, 20 articles were included, which met at least one of the criteria. Based on the results of the study, these show a great diversity in the changes and recommendations for pregnant women who show the pathology.
