HIV/AIDS AND STD INFO
The HIV Nightline responds to over 10,000 calls annually from all over the United States. People call us for many reasons: people just testing HIV positive, people in later stages of AIDS feeling isolated and/or concerned about their medications, caregivers buckling under the stress of caring for a loved one at home, and people concerned about the HIV risks. What makes the Nightline unique is our hours. For people receiving their HIV test results after work at a clinic, to people just having a night of unsafe sexual exposure, the program is often the only resource open for immediate care.
