The epidemic of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)/Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in Indonesia has entered the stage of the concentrated epidemic. We need to assess factors that are associated to the efforts to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to baby by midwives in the public health centers and in the private practices in City of Denpasar using SWOT analysis. This research was a qualitative study by involving eight midwives coordinator and staffs in the public health center in the City of Denpasar, ten private practice midwives and two head of health care centers. Data were collected using in-depth interview guidance and observation sheets, and the study was conducted from June to September 2015. Data were analyzed using content analysis. The policy of the officer about screening and early detecting from the central level to the district was a major strength should be in point of view of midwives. The main weakness was the lack of awareness of the private practices of midwives to support the success of voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) and provider-initiated testing and counseling (PITC) programs and the cost of laboratory test before having an antiretroviral therapy was expensive. Midwives showed a big responsibility to prevent transmission of HIV to the fetus through early screening.
