Did you know?


  • Every 9 ½ minutes, someone is diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
  • People diagnosed with HIV/AIDS are living quality lives for much longer with proper medical treatment, appropriate medications and healthy living. Early diagnosis and treatment are key.
  • UNDETECTABLE = UNTRANSMITTABLE.  If you take your ART medication daily as prescribed and maintain an undetectable viral load, the CDC reports you have effectively no risk of transmitting HIV.
Since 2015, Linn County Ryan White participants have increased their viral suppression by 6%! Now 89% are virally suppressed meaning their viral count is so low they can’t transmit HIV.
