Delaware State Senate Passes Bill Aimed At Reducing Mother-To-Child HIV Transmission
The Delaware State Senate recently passed a bill (SB 86) that would add HIV testing to the standard battery of tests given to all pregnant women, WMTD.com reports. Lawmakers hope that the bill will help reduce the rate of mother-to-child HIV transmission. Women would be able to choose to "opt out" of taking the test, according to WMTD.com (Saki, WMTD.com, 6/14).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
