Since HIV is a chronic disease (meaning you have it for the rest of your life), there is no cure, but there are a variety of medical treatment options for HIV-positive individuals. These treatments ensure folks are able to have healthy bodies, similar to how they would if they were not HIV-positive. If results show you as positive for HIV, Lurie Children's HIV screening team will help connect you to medical care. Folks who are 22 or older will be connected to long term care that best fits your needs.
We are able to treat for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and trichomoniasis if you are between the ages of 12 and 24 for FREE. If you are older than 24, we will help you find a location where you can be treated.
