Can I get help

Yes! Start by contacting your local county health department. The health department may give you the name of a trained HIV case manager who is able to help you. You can get help if:

  • You have HIV (or the family member you are trying to help has HIV)
  • You meet the income limit. Limits may be different for different programs.
  • You live in Oregon or Clark County, Washington.
  • You provide the information needed.

The information you share will be kept confidential.


Who can help me get services

HIV case managers can!

Case managers are located throughout the state, and they know about the services and programs available in their area to help HIV-positive Oregonians and their families. Case managers can help determine eligibility for various programs that can assist you. They can help with information and referrals, adherance to HIV medications, and coordination between health partners. Your HIV case manager is probably at your county health department. They may also be found in some community-based organizations and clinics.
