As a part of its overall public health mission, the health district provides leadership in helping manage the HIV epidemic by working with community and state partners in prevention, case management, surveillance and evaluation activities.
The number of people living with HIV is increasing, as effective new drug therapies keep HIV-infected persons healthy longer and dramatically reduce the death rate. The health district is committed to providing support for persons in the county living with HIV.
In October 2018, Spokane Regional Health District officially joined the Undetectable=Untransmittable campaign (also known as U=U), a public movement and worldwide campaign to promote understanding HIV and reduce fears associated with it. Learn more about U=U here.
