Abstract: African HIV-infected pregnant women are the most vulnerable population group to malaria infection. Paradoxically, these women are also the least protected against malaria due to fear of potential interactions between antiretroviral and antimalarial drugs. Action is urgently needed to evaluate antimalarials that can be safely administered to HIV-infected pregnant women on antiretroviral treatment and cotrimoxazole prophylaxis.
