Welcome to the North Dakota Department of Health HIV Program website. The
HIV program is divided into three sections: HIV Surveillance, HIV
Prevention, and Ryan White Program Part B (formerly know as ND CARES).
The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) HIV/AIDS surveillance program receives funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to collect information about HIV infection and AIDS diagnoses among North Dakota residents. The HIV/AIDS data are used to characterize and predict the changing epidemic at the local, regional and national levels. North Dakota HIV/AIDS data are summarized annually to help the NDDoH to:
- Monitor the incidence and estimated prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the state.
- Assess the risks for HIV infection and develop effective HIV prevention programs.
- Develop surveillance methods to allow for a more current estimate and characterization of HIV/AIDS risks and needs.
- Justify necessary federal and state funding to support continued HIV/AIDS prevention, services and surveillance activities.
The HIV prevention program exists in North Dakota to reduce the spread of HIV by decreasing risky behaviors which include unprotected sex, needle-sharing for drug use, or tattooing and body piercing. The HIV program is expanding the reach of HIV testing through the use of rapid HIV testing and providing new opportunities to reach people who are at risk of becoming infected with HIV.
North Dakota Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B assists low-income North Dakota residents living with HIV or AIDS to access confidential health and supportive services.
