World AIDS day 2018

This World AIDS DAY 2018, 
EPIC4, in collaboration with CPARG, highlight the work of Canadian healthcare providers and researchers towards a #AIDSFREEGENERATION

In 2017, 237 babies were born HIV free in Canada despite having a HIV positive mother

There were zero vertical transmissions where antiretroviral therapy was given to the mother without any interruption

Since 1997, 3660 babies have been born HIV free to women living with HIV in Canada

89% of children living with HIV are on antiretroviral therapy, and 92% are virally suppressed

Canadian HIV researchers continue to be active in the study of:
1- the HIV reservoir in children in the search for a CURE (EPIC4)
2- the elimination of vertical transmission of HIV (CPHSP)
3- the effects of in utero exposure to HIV drugs (CARMA)
