HIV…it’s Different Now.
Saskatchewan continues to have high rates of HIV infection. Due to the availability of antiretroviral medication, HIV is no longer classified as a death sentence, but is instead seen as a manageable chronic disease. Women who are living with HIV are faced with many challenges when they discover they are pregnant, are pregnant and discover they are living with HIV, or are considering having a baby while living with HIV.
This poster shares the message that with appropriate treatment and prenatal care, women living with HIV can have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.SKU: 7-019
Are You Positive You’re Negative? Protect Yourself and Others. Get Tested.
Rates of adolescent pregnancy and STIs in Saskatchewan are among the highest in Canada. The number of individuals testing positive for HIV in Saskatchewan is almost twice the Canadian average. These high rates are of concern because adolescent pregnancy is associated with poorer outcomes for the mom and the baby. Likewise, if STIs and HIV are not treated, they can cause serious health issues for males, females, and unborn babies. Adolescent pregnancy, STIs, and HIV can be prevented with proper contraception use, testing, and treatment.
This poster was created to promote further awareness of the need for STI and HIV testing in Saskatchewan and to highlight the importance of contraceptive use.SKU: 7-016
Are You Positive You’re Negative? HIV and Hepatitis C
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health (2010) reports that 70% of those diagnosed with HIV are co-infected with hepatitis C. This co-infection is of particular concern as HIV can hasten the progression of hepatitis C disease, and co-infection can complicate or reduce the treatment options for both diseases.
Like HIV, hepatitis C can be transmitted from mother to child. Testing is the only way for a woman to know whether she is living with HIV or hepatitis C.
