Evaluation of Adherence to Guidelines to Prevent Perinatal Infections in Oregon
The vertical transmission of infections from mother to child is a major cause of newborn morbidity and mortality. Over the past few decades, interventions to prevent the transmission of certain infections during pregnancy and labor and delivery, such as group B Streptococcus
(GBS), hepatitis B virus (HBV), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), syphilis, N. gonorrheae
, C. trachomatis, and rubella have been implemented to reduce the burden of these diseases among neonates. This report
details the findings of an evaluation of prenatal screening and treatment practices in Oregon for these pathogens.
