Living with HIV Twenty-five years ago, a diagnosis of HIV meant that death was just around the corner. Today, an individual receiving that same diagnosis can expect to live a lengthy life -- maybe not the life he or she had envisioned, but life just the same. Thanks to advances in modern medicine and medical care, HIV/AIDS has become a chronic, yet manageable disease. However, it is still an impoverishing one that can literally turn peoples lives upside down. Individuals are faced with the high cost of medicine and doctors visits, not to mention the horrible side effects that often accompany the medication. And one more thing. There is no cure. For the past 15 years, HIV Alliance has been supporting people living with HIV/AIDS and preventing new infections. We focus our attention on many areas, including prevention, education and client services. For all of our programs, there is a core value of non-judgment. We are not really concerned with how people contracted HIV. Rather, we are more concerned with helping people get the treatment and services they need to lead better lives. It is our continued belief that someday we will live in a community that is free of HIV and AIDS.

HIV Alliance is here to help!
