Vertical (Mother-to-child) Transmission of HIV: Prevention, Treatment, and Education
Saskatchewan continues to see high rates of new cases of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in comparison to the rest of Canada. A large number of these new cases are being identified in women of childbearing age.

The review includes findings and recommendations on vertical transmission, transmission prevention, barriers to prevention, and health promotion around these topics.
