HIV / AIDS
What is HIV/AIDS?
HIV is a virus spread through certain body fluids that attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells, often called T cells. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. Opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS.
HIV/AIDS Case Management Program
The HIV / AIDS Case Management Program encourages members to take charge of their disease by using their health care team to develop personalized management tools, including risk reduction techniques. When patient self-care education starts early, it can prevent life changing complications.
