HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS SymbolHIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. As the Public Health Department, it is our goal to protect the health of the community through prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate management and control of HIV/AIDS. This is achieved through surveillance, disease investigation, patient education, community awareness and acting as a resource to local physicians, nurses, and medical personnel.

HIV/AIDS FAQ

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. HIV can be transmitted during vaginal or other types of sexual intercourse including oral and anal sex. Since HIV often does not have any symptoms, the only way to know if someone has HIV is to get tested.
