I feel fine, I don't want people to know I have HIV, and more information
What happens inside your body when you have HIV
Don't assume that if you have health insurance you are not eligible for some kind of assistance. Sometimes insurance does not pay premiums and co-pays. Call HAHSTA at (202) 671-4900 and ask to speak to a representative to see if you qualify. If you have just been diagnosed HIV positive it is important you start receiving care as soon as possible.
