From the year 2000 to June 2016, 293,685 cases of HIV infection were registered in women and 99,804 pregnant women were infected with this virus. Several ducts adopted during the care of the puerperal pregnancy cycle of women with HIV are able to prevent the vertical transmission of this virus, including the use of ART with control of viremia. For this to occur, adequate adherence to ART during prenatal care is necessary. This study will be an observational cross-sectional study whose objective is to evaluate the adherence to ART in pregnant women attended in the Infectious Diseases of Gynecology and Obstetrics of the University of São Paulo at HCFMRP, as well as to analyze the predictive factors of adherence to this treatment. A total of 196 pregnant women attended in this service during a one-year period with validated questionnaire and translated into Portuguese evaluating the adherence of antiretroviral treatment (CEAT-VIH) and a second questionnaire prepared for this research were evaluated to evaluate the predictive factors adherence to ART.
