The Impact of Substance Use on Mother-to-child Transmission of HIV
This literature review aimed to assess the impact of substance use on mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. Such a review was deemed necessary due to Saskatchewan’s unique HIV profile. Specifically, new cases of HIV in Saskatchewan are: (a) the highest in Canada; (b) most often associated with injection drug use (IDU); and (c) increasing rapidly in women of childbearing age (ages 15 to 39). The primary questions addressed in the report include: Why do substance use services need to be focused on to avoid MTCT of HIV? How does having a substance use issue influence high risk behaviours that can lead to HIV infection? How does having a substance use issue affect virus progression and impact the health of pregnant women living with HIV?SKU: 7-508
