The Public Health Agency of Canada is pleased to share with you the electronic release of the HIV Screening and Testing Guide in English and French. The guide is designed to complement existing efforts to support care providers involved in HIV testing, including primary care providers, public health nurses, counsellors, social workers, community health workers, midwives, community-based service providers and others in an effort to reduce the number of undiagnosed HIV infections in Canada. The guide reflects a carefully considered range of input obtained from a large number of stakeholders involved in HIV testing across Canada. This guide does not supersede any provincial/territorial legislative, regulatory, policy and practice requirements or professional guidelines that govern and inform the practice of care providers in their respective jurisdictions. We encourage providers to review the attached listing of current HIV testing guidelines to be familiar with guidelines in your jurisdiction.
