Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the body's immune system. If it is not treated, it can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

HIV prevention & care

There is currently no effective cure. After people get HIV, they have it for life. But with proper medical care, HIV can be controlled. People with HIV who get effective HIV treatment can live long, healthy lives and protect their partners.


Some examples of HIV prevention interventions currently being deployed include: 

  • HIV counseling, testing and referral (clinical and community settings)
  • HIV partner services/field investigations
  • Condom distribution
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis


Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)

PrEP is a medication available to HIV negative individuals that, when taken daily, helps reduce the risk of HIV infection. PrEP does not protect against other STD’s and therefore routine screening remains an important element of sexual health.

Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP): Medication taken after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected. PEP must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV, but the sooner you start PEP, the better.


HIV Care / Ryan White Programs 

The Idaho Ryan White Part B Program (RWPB) provides medical case management (MCM) and medication assistance through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP).

All clients are screened for state, federal, and private/commercial insurance benefits including but not limited to Medicaid, Medicare, State health insurance exchange and/or employer provided insurance.
