HAART for HIV inpregnancy

HAART for HIV inpregnancy Posted by Sivapriya S.
Paul!

This is from a mock MCQ :
HAART should be commenced if the CD4 count is < 200 ? 350 /L
True False
Sivapriya\'s answer: true
Correct answer: false

Notes:
Combinations of at least 3 anti-viral agents (HAART) are used outside pregnancy and are recommended for use in pregnancy (usually at CD4 count of 200-350 million / L). Optimal use should suppress viral load to undetectable levels (<50 copies / ml)



My doubt is:
1. Should I answer \"TRUE\" only if ithe question is
\' HAART is offered or recommended to women with CD4 counts 200-350...\' rather than \' HAART should be given to.....\'


2. If HAART is recommended to women with CD4 counts 200-350, than what is recommended for women with CD4 counts < 200, as given in the mock mcq?
