Health Care

 

If you have healthcare insurance, you may want to check with your insurance carrier for a pre-approved physician in their network. HIPAtlanta can assist you in locating a healthcare provider to partner with you in managing your HIV/AIDS and STD care. A care provider will help you develop a treatment plan, monitor your laboratory results, be your advisor on health-related matters and care for your overall health and well-being. Contact us for assistance with your search for a provider.

Treatment

 

Today, an estimated 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States. Thanks to better treatments, people with HIV are now living longer—and with a better quality of life—than ever before. If you are living with HIV, it’s important to make choices that keep you healthy and protect others. ²Although there is no cure for HIV infection, there are treatment options that can help people living with HIV experience long and productive lives.

CDC and other government agencies continue to work on a variety of treatment-related activities, including:

 

  • HIV/AIDS clinical research and drug trials
  • vaccine research
  • development of treatment guidelines and best practices
  • creating and implementing treatment-related prevention strategies that can help stop new infections. ¹
