More women with perinatally-acquired HIV are giving birth. We evaluated infectious cause hospitalizations (ICH) in HIV-uninfected infants of perinatally HIV-infected (HEU-P), non-perinatally HIV-infected (HEU-N), and HIV-uninfected women (HUU) through 12 months-of-life at an urban tertiary heath center. HEU-P infants experienced higher ICH risk compared to HEU-N and HUU infants. Identification of biological and structural drivers of differences are needed.
