ABSTRACT: Three major modes of transmission of HIV infection are sexual, blood borne and vertical. During last five years special efforts have been made to obtain global information about the magnitude of HIV infection in most vulnerable but least accessible group viz., women and children. In the present study anti-HIV antibodies to both HIV-1 and HIV-2 viruses were detected in sera of pregnant women and neonates born to seropositive mothers, using ELISA technique. Thirty seven (4.56percent) of 811 pregnant women and 16 babies born to seropositive mothers were positive to anti HIV antibodies.
