New SOGC Clinical Practice Guideline “Guideline No. 450: Care of Pregnant Women Living with HIV and Interventions to Reduce Perinatal Transmission” in press in JOGC!

On Thursday May 9th 2024, The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada (JOGC) virtually published the new clinical practice guidelines for The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Canada (SOGC) on the care of pregnant women (and people with a cervix) living with HIV and interventions on how to prevent perinatal HIV transmission. These guidelines are also currently in press, with a planned publication in a future issue of the JOGC. These guidelines were created by a group of four distinguished experts in the field of pregnancy care and reproductive infectious disease, which included RID Program team members Dr. Deborah Money and Dr. Andrea Atkinson! Additionally, longtime RID program collaborator Dr. Isabelle Boucoiran was also one of the authors! This publication will help ensure that the care of pregnant women and people with a cervix living with HIV in Canada as well as their infants will be conducted using the most updated knowledge available.
