About

The HIV Prevention Program seeks to prevent new infections by supporting public health HIV testing to target populations, routine testing in healthcare settings, comprehensive prevention services for people living with HIV, condom distribution, policy change, and perinatal prevention efforts.

Other activities supported by the HIV Prevention Program include:

  • Social marketing
  • Community mobilization
  • Syringe services programs
  • Evidence-based behavioral interventions
  • Linkage to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis (nPEP)
  • The Oregon HIV/STD Hotline (1-800-777-2437)

Mission

To reduce the spread of HIV using community-supported, evidence-based practices.


Goals

  • Measure the impact of the epidemic in Oregon, forecast its future course and severity, and identify populations for targeted prevention activities.
  • Facilitate HIV prevention activities through local health departments, community-based AIDS service organizations, the media, schools, Corrections, and public education (including local community planning and program implementation).
  • Serve people living with HIV to coordinate their case management, enrollment in the AIDS Drug Assistance Program, emergency assistance, and referrals for social support services.
  • Develop public policy, monitor quality of program delivery, provide fiscal oversight of funds both within the program and with local health departments and community-based organizations, and provide technical assistance.
