Pregnant and breastfeeding women are reminded of the importance of taking a test to determine HIV-status. By becoming aware of their status, HIV-positive women are then able to consult their health care providers to determine an appropriate course of action for antiretroviral therapy and nutrition. The brochure points out that good nutrition is especially important to HIV-positive mothers and their infants and gives illustrated pointers on safely preparing foods and planning balanced meals. General points covering meal frequency, water consumption, and diet supplementation are given, and women are reminded to follow their health care providers' instructions.
