Newark, NJ – Have you stopped receiving treatment for your HIV infection? If yes, there is an easy remedy – Call 800-624-2377 to be connected to the HIV/AIDS Navigator Project and get back into care. It’s that simple.
Medical treatment can be a lifesaver – it allows those infected with HIV to live longer, healthier lives. It’s extremely important for infected individuals to continue regular visits with their healthcare providers in addition to consistently following their HIV drug treatment plan every day. By not receiving treatment or skipping drug doses, infected individuals run the risk of not only increasing the amount of HIV in their blood, but also developing drug resistance to their current drug treatment.
The New Jersey AIDS/HIV/STD Hotline is here to help anyone infected with HIV get connected to a navigator who will help them get the care they need. Call us at 1-800-624-2377 today to speak with a healthcare professional. Linking HIV-infected people to medical care increases their chance for staying healthy. HIV testing, diagnosis and treatment help prevent others from being infected.
