Asian Biomed (Res Rev News) 2017 Apr;11(2):145-159

Department of Health, Thailand Ministry of Public Health, Nonthaburi 11000, Thailand.

Background: Thailand has made progress in reducing perinatal HIV transmission rates to levels that meet the World Health Organization targets for so-called "elimination" (<2%) of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT).
