If she does not have TB, the risk of infecting your baby with HIV just by normal day to day contact is extremely low to non existent as HIV is really only transmitted mainly by blood and sex. The important thing is to get her to a HIV clinic where she can start getting preventative treatment for HIV associated infections, and antiviral medication if needed. She also needs to go for regular check-ups. Giving her information so that she knows what to do how to prevent spreading of the disease is crucial. Let her have the flu vaccine if her CD4 count is above 200 to prevent her from getting flu. If possible buy her supplements: a good multivitamin and Moducare - this will boost her immunity and prevent infections. Try to keep her employed as long as possible, often the loss of one family member's income causes extreme poverty in low income households.
