As they are living longer, healthier lives due to improved access to antiretroviral therapy, HIV-affected individuals and couples increasingly have childbearing desires. A desire to bear children is normative in many cultures and societies around the world, regardless of HIV status. However, there are unique challenges to reproduction in an HIV-affected partnership. The selection of a reproductive method is also dependent on each couple’s underlying fertility potential, which in low-resource environments is not often assessed prior to attempts at achieving pregnancy. This workshop transfers knowledge and increases the skills of participants by providing tools to assess and manage infertility/subfertility in HIV-affected couples in low-resource environments who are planning to achieve pregnancy.
