Guided by an HIV and Pregnancy advisory committee comprised of health and allied health professionals, the Prevention Institute created numerous resources including brochures, posters, e-learning projects, a guide for care, and a video. Because of this work, the Prevention Institute is the go-to place in Saskatchewan for resources related to HIV and pregnancy.
