Even today, a positive HIV diagnosis still frightens almost all those affected, even though the treatment of HIV infection has made great progress in recent years. A positive test result no longer means a death sentence! Nevertheless, many questions, fears and uncertainties remain that need to be clarified:
How do I deal with the diagnosis?
What do I tell my partner or family?
What about my professional future?
Which doctor do I have to go to now?
When should I take medication?
The Aidshilfe im Kreis Unna offers professional advice and support: competent, confidential and of course free of charge.
We offer long-term support for HIV-positive people and their relatives for all situations in life, help with social and financial issues, point out offers of self-help and, on request, arrange meetings of positive self-help at state and national level.
In addition, we can apply for financial support from the German AIDS Foundation.
