Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. This means that once you have HIV, you will have it for life.

It does not test for AIDS. This pamphlet explains how HIV is spread, the pros and cons of being tested for HIV, how an HIV test is done, and whether the test is accurate. Info is also provided on how you will get your test result and how long it will take, and what negative, positive, and indeterminate test results mean.

Abstract
Enterobacteriaceae are a family of bacteria that are naturally found in the gut (digestive system). Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae are bacteria that have become resistant to a group of antibiotics known as carbapenems. This means these antibiotics cannot prevent the growth of the bacteria anymore. This pamphlet explains how CPE is spread, why CPE is a concern, how to know if you have CPE, and how long you may have CPE. Infection prevention and control (IPAC) guidelines for your care in the hospital and at home are explained. The French version of this pamphlet 2344, "Entérobactéries productrices de carbapénémase (EPC)," is also available.

The goal of induction is to have a vaginal birth. This pamphlet explains why you are being offered induction, how it is done, how long it takes, and what will happen when you come to the hospital. What to do if your induction is postponed is also discussed.
