An HIV diagnosis does not have the same meaning today as when the virus first emerged in the 1980s. People can now expect to live a long, full life with HIV, that is, as long as they adhere to a prescribed antiretroviral treatment regimen. AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care globally, takes an instrumental role in ensuring that people living with HIV can adhere to treatment and access fast, free, and reliable prevention methods.

Since its introduction in 1992, the 340B Program has vastly altered the pharmacy landscape.

Finance guys like myself often have the reputation of being unwilling to spend money. However, we can always be convinced to invest in activities with a high likelihood of return.
A patient newly diagnosed with HIV can often feel as if the cards are stacked against them before they even begin. Overcoming the fear and stigma of telling loved ones, finding the right doctor, navigating the insurance process, starting and staying in care—the journey ahead can seem like an impossible one. Even the smallest obstacles along the way can lead to non-adherence to treatment, dropping out of care, and worse health outcomes.
