NSHPC contact details
All children presenting with HIV infection, regardless of place of birth or mode of acquisition of infection, should be reported to the National Surveillance of HIV in Pregnancy & Childhood (NSHPC), as well as all infants born to HIV positive women in the UK and Ireland, regardless of infection status.
NSHPC data contribute to a wide range of epidemiological and clinical analyses and publications, including assessments of the impact of antenatal screening and the uptake of interventions in pregnancy and the monitoring of developments in the management of infected and exposed children.
Please use your NSHPC secure online account to report:
- all HIV-exposed children (these should be reported to us within their first 3-6 months of life)
- all children (up to and including 16 years of age) diagnosed with HIV (these should be reported as soon as they are seen)
If you do not already have a secure online account please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set one up.
NSHPC data is presented widely at national and international conferences.
