Patient Information - HIV

HIV is a chronic disease and is manageable with ongoing treatments and care. Most HIV positive people who receive the proper treatment and care live long and healthy lives, long after they learn they are infected. Many never develop full-blown AIDS.

There are numerous organizations dedicated to helping HIV positive people cope with living with a chronic infectious disease, and we hope that healthcare providers will encourage all HIV positive people to take advantage of the resources they offer. These organizations include the National Association of People with AIDS, the Latino Commission on AIDS and the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, among others.
