Can an HIV positive man father a healthy child?
Q: My 28 years old brother is HIV positive. Can he father a child and prevent HIV infection in the child?
A:Yes these days, by use of certain anti-HIV drugs administered to the HIV positive woman during pregnancy, childbirth and after delivery as well as by giving these drugs to the newborn + caesarian section for delivery + (if circumstances permit) by avoiding breast feeding, the risk of HIV infection to the baby can be minimised very significantly. Please ask your brother and his wife to contact a HIV treatment centre for the needful.
