The mission of the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute is to reduce the occurrence of disabling conditions in children. One of the program areas at the Prevention Institute is the Sexual and Reproductive Health program. This program works in areas that are of particular pertinence to the health of Saskatchewan residents, such as preconception health, sexually transmitted infections and their impact on fertility and the health of the fetus, and HIV and pregnancy. The goal of this program is to provide education and resources to help enable people to make positive choices and informed decisions during their reproductive years that will lead to healthy pregnancy outcomes.The HIV and pregnancy program was created in 2010 to increase awareness and knowledge about HIV and pregnancy among health and allied health providers in Saskatchewan, including community partners and peers, as well as the general public. 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.
