The drugs provided through ADAP can help people with HIV/AIDS to live longer and treat the symptoms of HIV infection.
ADAP can help people with partial insurance and those who have a Medicaid spenddown requirement.
Rates of HIV viral load can reach very high levels (up to 10) in the 4-6 week period immediately after infection, and as the immune system becomes very weak years after infection.
HIV viral load is strongly related to infectivity, with very high levels associated with increased risk of the virus being passed during sexual contact or other exposure.
Evidence suggests that people with HIV taking ART can expect a life-expectancy similar to that of HIV-negative individuals.
HIV viral load (VL) is a measurement of the number of copies of HIV virus per cubic centimetre of blood.In Southern and Eastern Africa, reductions in HIV deaths have been rapid, and strongly linked to the roll-out of ART programmes since the early 2000s.Between 20, there was a 62% decline in the number of deaths attributable to HIV infection in this region.Services must be provided through a home care agency which has enrolled in the program.APIC can pay for commercial health insurance premiums for ADAP eligible clients.A key aim of ART is to reduce the HIV viral load to an undetectable level in the blood, indicating that viral replication is suppressed.Raised viral load whilst taking ART may indicate treatment failure, resistance to the drugs, or poor adherence.However, some groups have shown greater declines in new infections than others.In particular, women have higher treatment coverage and better adherence to ART than men, and rates of death from AIDS-associated illnesses were 27% lower among women than men in 2016.If you are not sure of the best way to document your address, income, and/or health insurance; or if you have questions about the enrollment process, please call the Uninsured Care Programs toll-free: 1-800-542-2437.The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides free medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS and opportunistic infections.
