What to know about HIV/AIDS
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system. If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
HIV/AIDS is spread through sexual contact, sharing needles to inject drugs, and during pregnancy or through breastfeeding.
With proper treatment and advances in medicine, HIV rarely advances to AIDS
Why get treated for HIV/AIDS?
HIV treatment reduces the amount of virus in the blood
Taking your HIV medicine as prescribed prevents drug resistance
HIV treatment prevents the transmission of HIV to others
What does U=U Mean?
People who are on antiretroviral therapy and have an “undetectable” viral load have a normal life expectancy and are “untransmittable” (U=U), which means they cannot transmit HIV to their partners.
What HIV Treatment Services are Offered at ODH?
We offer both antiretroviral therapy and navigation services to people living with HIV. We can also help connect you to community resources and primary care support.
