Children of HIV positive haemophilic men

Academic Article


  • All 14 children who were conceived at the time their 12 haemophilic fathers were anti-HIV positive were shown to be HIV negative and to be healthy physically and mentally. Eleven of the 12 female partners have remained anti-HIV negative and one has seroconverted. Despite counselling it is likely that children will continue to be conceived by anti-HIV positive haemophiliacs.
