Prevention + Pregnancy
Approximately 75% of people living with HIV (of all genders) are of reproductive age. It is estimated that half of male-female couples that include an HIV-positive partner want to have children. Yet too few people living with HIV are aware that they can become pregnant and deliver a healthy baby with little HIV risk to the negative partner or the baby.
Provider-patient conversations about fertility desires and how the latest advances in HIV prevention such as PrEP and treatment as prevention make safer conception possible and more accessible than ever before are simply not occurring with great frequency. Through training providers on the range of HIV prevention options as well as conversations about pregnancy desires and planning, the Midwest HIV Prevention and Pregnancy Planning Initiative aims to increase the provision of high-quality reproductive health care to people living with and vulnerable to HIV.
