The use of HAART (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy) has significantly decreased the morbidity and mortality in individuals infected with HIV. Many couples who are infected with HIV (sero-discordant and sero-concordant) seek assistance with conception. The objective of the paper is to address the options available to these couples using artificial reproductive techniques (ART), in order to decrease the risk of transmission of HIV to the uninfected partner and the unborn fetus.
