HIV and Pregnancy
To promote further awareness of HIV in Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute has created three PowerPoint presentations to be used to educate about HIV and Pregnancy.
It is important to ensure that services and programs are delivered to women living with HIV in a non-judgemental and unbiased fashion to counteract their fears and any misinformation they may have received. By providing education and training, the discrimination and stigma faced by women living with HIV can be reduced. This reduction can lead to improved care, increased likelihood of women seeking testing and treatment, and therefore, a reduction in the number of babies born with HIV. The following three e-learning projects provide information on HIV and pregnancy.
Pregnant, Using Drugs, and Living with HIV
is an interactive YouTube video that talks about how substance use and tobacco use affect a pregnant woman living with HIV and mother-to-child-transmission. To view video click here.
Healthy Eating for Pregnant Women Living with HIV
provides information about how a healthy nutritional status may lower the chance of HIV transmission to the baby.
Understanding the Connection between Sexual Violence and HIV
examines the interconnections between childhood sexual abuse, violence against women, and HIV-risk related behaviours.
The STI Adventures
The STI Adventures has been created to provide an interactive opportunity to learn about sexually transmitted infections (also known as STIs) and their effect on fertility, pregnancy, and newborn babies. The project is recommended for middle and high school students.
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
To promote awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute has created an educational PowerPoint presentation for caregivers and professionals.
