Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about the unique HIV care concerns that women have. It identifies important differences in HIV care for women who are newly diagnosed with HIV, including gynecological conditions, pregnancy and childbirth, and the need for a Pap smear and pelvic exam. The document discusses concerns about diagnosis later in the stages of HIV infection and opportunistic infections (OIs), multiple barriers to care, and the need to practice safer sex.
