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.
This poster was created to promote further awareness of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C in Saskatchewan and to highlight the importance of testing for pregnant women.SKU: 7-014
