We now have medications that can effectively reduce levels of HIV to an undetectable level. That means an HIV+ person can live a longer, healthier life and that ability to transmit the virus to another person is greatly lessened. This, in turn, means a reduction in new cases of HIV infection in our community.
Linkage to Care is a process in which people testing positive for HIV are assisted in accessing care and treatment for their HIV infection. Our goals are to increase the number of people who know their HIV status, remain in treatment on antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, and maintain a suppressed viral load. Counseling and testing programs support people finding out their HIV status.
The Miami Dade HIV/AIDS Partnership page provides links to agencies and individuals providing services including medical case management, medical care, dental care, legal assistance and housing assistance to HIV+ individuals.
