Abstract: Sri Lanka has remained a low prevalent country for HIV for past three decades. One important aspect of maintaining this low prevalence is preventing mother to child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. As highly effective strategies are now available to reduce the risk of MTCT, early diagnosis of HIV in antenatal mother is important. Good knowledge about HIV and MTCT will promote mothers to take up HIV testing. Though mothers in this study population had a reasonably good education their knowledge about MTCT of HIV was poor.
