What is the safety net of perinatal HIV prevention in Illinois?

The Illinois Department of Public Health has partnered with the Mother and Child Alliance and other organizations to develop a statewide safety net for perinatal HIV designed to identify and link to care pregnant people living with HIV who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the health care system. The key elements of the safety net include the 24/7 Illinois Perinatal HIV Hotline, rapid HIV testing in labor and delivery units throughout the state, and enhanced perinatal HIV case management for patients and their infants who require additional support and services.
