Procedures and guidelines
The guidelines should be read in conjunction with local policies and guidelines, because each District Health Board (DHB) may deliver antenatal HIV screening with local or regional differences. The HIV team with medical, nursing and community support in each DHB can provide further advice.
Additional information for women
It is important to ensure women are aware their data is used for monitoring and evaluation and that their personal details are carefully protected. Even if women choose not to have screening, the fact they have made that decision is important for effective monitoring. This is so we can ensure HIV testing remains accessible and safe for all women, regardless of the screening choices they make.

Programme monitoring and evaluation is now managed collaboratively by the NSU Quality and Antenatal and Newborn teams. The Monitoring and Evaluation plan is available here.
