Can the HIV virus be transmitted from a mother to a baby by breast feeding?
An understanding of more in-depth AIDS-related knowledge is obtained with this question, which aims to determine whether the woman knows that a mother who has AIDS can pass on the disease to her baby. Record '1' for 'Yes' and '2' for 'No' for each of the items. If the woman does not know the answer or is unsure, record '8'.
