[e-drug] ARVs in pregnanacy for PMTCT

E-DRUG: ARVs in pregnanacy for PMTCT
------------------------------------

dear E-druggers,

I am working in a resource poor setting in AndhraPradesh India, and have
many pregnant women who are infected. The current recommendation for
PTCT prevention leaves the mother high and dry once the child is born.
In view of the possibility that she would develop drug resistance,  as
the drugs will be stopped after she delivers, what are the current
options?
