Family HIV Program

The Family HIV Program, established in 1995, serves women, children, youth, and families infected with, affected by, and at risk for HIV in Vermont and New Hampshire.

We are committed to supporting local providers so that patients and their families get the best care possible, both at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and in their own communities.

We provide:

  • Primary care and support for other primary care providers throughout New Hampshire and Vermont
  • Specialty care by a team that includes pediatric and adult infectious disease physicians, nurse case managers, social workers, a dietitian, a consumer advocate, and other specialists at Dartmouth-Hitchcock
  • Perinatal outreach to pregnant women who are HIV-positive, as well as care and early testing for HIV-exposed newborns up to two years of age
  • Case management by a nurse case manager that includes coordination with other providers, community education, group support programs, and home visits
  • Mental health counseling and psychosocial support for individuals, families, and groups
  • Educational programs for patients, their families, healthcare providers, schools, and communities
  • Advocacy for children, youth, women, and families on local and national levels

This program is supported by the Ryan White Care Act, HIV/AIDS Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration, Department of Health and Human Resources.
