A list of national and local resources available to you can be found in the links below. The list includes agencies throughout the state of Iowa where people living with HIV can receive medical care and supportive services.
Navigating paperwork, appointments, and maintaining your health may seem overwhelming at times and we encourage you to find a site near you to determine how they can help. If you're seeking care, a great place to start is www.StopHIViowa.org. The site details all HIV programs and their locations in Iowa.
Finding kind, compassionate, LGBTQIA healthcare providers can be challenging. We encourage you to utilize any of the resources above or visit Stop HIV Iowa to get connected with a Ryan White HIV care and supportive services program, where you will receive care with dignity and respect.

Self-care is an important part of maintaining your health. Cuddling with your pets, reading your favorite book, connecting with others in a support group...whatever works for you, find time for it. Self-care is not selfish.
