- Nearly 1.2 million people in the United States are living with an HIV infection and 1 in 8 are unware they are infected.
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is now the most effective method to prevent HIV transmission.
HIV & Pregnancy
If you are pregnant living with HIV and taking proper HIV medications, chances are you will not transmit HIV to your baby. Since 1990 the transmission rate of HIV from mother to child in the US has declined by 95%. Fewer babies are being born with HIV.
HIV & Treatment
If you are HIV positive and struggling with your diagnosis, help is available. Unfortunately, only 4 in 10 people living with HIV are on treatment. Accepting your HIV diagnosis can be a huge challenge.
HIV & Substance Abuse
Using alcohol and/or drugs to cope with an HIV diagnosis, sexual orientation or a mental illness can be self-damaging. Although drugs and alcohol can seem like a way out, they will only compromise your health.
