HIV/AIDS-WHITE FEMALES

I'm going to read two statements about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. After I read each one, please tell me whether you think it is true or false, or if you don't know.
A pregnant woman with HIV can get treatment to help reduce the chances that she w ill pass the virus on to her baby.*
