SEC. 7. PERINATAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV DISEASE.

    (a) <<NOTE: 42 USC 300ff-33 note.>>  Findings.--The Congress finds 
as follows:
            (1) Research studies and statewide clinical experiences have 
        demonstrated that administration of anti-retroviral medication 
        during pregnancy can significantly reduce the transmission of 
        the human immunodeficiency virus (commonly known as HIV) from an 
        infected mother to her baby.
            (2) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have 
        recommended that all pregnant women receive HIV counseling; 
        voluntary, confidential HIV testing; and appropriate medical 
        treatment (including anti-retroviral therapy) and support 
        services.
            (3) The provision of such testing without access to such 
        counseling, treatment, and services will not improve the health 
        of the woman or the child.
            (4) The provision of such counseling, testing, treatment, 
        and services can reduce the number of pediatric cases of 
        acquired immune deficiency syndrome, can improve access to and 
        provision of medical care for the woman, and can provide 
        opportunities for counseling to reduce transmission among 
        adults, and from mother to child.
            (5) The provision of such counseling, testing, treatment, 
        and services can reduce the overall cost of pediatric cases of 
        acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
            (6) The cancellation or limitation of health insurance or 
        other health coverage on the basis of HIV status should be 
        impermissible under applicable law. Such cancellation or 
        limitation could result in disincentives for appropriate 
        counseling, testing, treatment, and services.
            (7) For the reasons specified in paragraphs (1) through 
        (6)--
                    (A) routine HIV counseling and voluntary testing of 
                pregnant women should become the standard of care; and
                    (B) the relevant medical organizations as well as 
                public health officials should issue guidelines making 
                such counseling and testing the standard of care.

    (b) Additional Requirements for Grants.--Part B of title XXVI (42 
U.S.C. 300ff-21 et seq.) is amended--
            (1) by inserting after the part heading the following:

                ``Subpart I--General Grant Provisions'';

            (2) in section 2611(a), <<NOTE: 42 USC 300ff-21.>>  by 
        adding at the end the following sentence: ``The authority of the 
        Secretary to provide grants under part B is subject to section 
        2626(e)(2) (relating to the decrease in perinatal transmission 
        of HIV disease).''; and
