In this two-part blog series, we hope to outline the following:
  • Part 1: 
    • The UNAIDS 90-90-90 guidelines and the importance of early recognition in order to engage patients with early ART;
    • The 3 phases of HIV infection and the Acute Retroviral Syndrome (ARS);
    • PublicHealth Agency of Canada (PHAC) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for testing and how it works at The Ottawa Hospital.
  • Part 2: 
    • Indications for occupational and non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP);
    • Indications and resources for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP);
    • Barriers to patient engagement and ways we can overcome them.
