HIV / AIDS Prevention & Services

HIV/AIDS Case Management services are administered by Public Health - Seattle & King County to help persons living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) to access and maintain consistent medical care and treatment, and improve their quality of life. Services include education on how to prevent the transmission of the disease to others, and links to culturally appropriate supportive services such as mental health, substance abuse treatment, housing, transportation and food.

The Ryan White CARE Act has provided federal funds for this national program since the early 1980s and is the primary source of funding. However, there are more Seattle residents living with HIV/AIDS than what these federal funds cover, so City investments expand this programs capacity to provide case management services, which include needs assessments and referrals.

2011 Funded Agencies and Programs

The City of Seattle has provided funds for HIV/AIDS Case Management services since 1996. The City General Funds are allocated through Public Health - Seattle & King County, the agency that oversees the programs. In 2011, the City is providing $227,851 for this program, $33,388 to the Perinatal HIV Consortium, and $153,750 for enhanced HIV/AIDS prevention strategies that will include expanded testing at the following sites:
