Amen!

Sexuality is a part of being human. If you can't have open and honest conversations with your health care provider about sexual health, maybe its time to look for another one.

The HIVe

Welcome to THE HIVe – the next chapter in WNC’s HIV care story.
This page intends to push out information on how HIV prevention and care are changing throughout Western North Carolina and the nation. This page also intends to pull on the vast knowledge, experience, and innovation that defines our regional HIV programs by serving as an information gathering and sharing forum for our community stakeholders, especially those whose lives have been and continue to be directly impacted by HIV.

As a concept, THE HIVe is nothing new: individual bees work in service for the good of the hive as a whole. However, in practice, THE HIVe is potentially transformative. We value quality, affordability, transparency, accountability, and respect – above all else, we value human dignity and diversity. Above all else, we value human life. It is with this heart, spirit, and mind that we invite our patients, staff, local leaders, advocates, and community to join forces in fueling change as we work as one to humanize and eradicate HIV.

Whether you’re simply following the unfolding plot or acting as a key character in the HIV in the South storyline, we need and want to hear from and serve you. Have input or ideas to share? New to HIV or have fallen out of care? Hit us up at [email protected]! We are all in this together (if you're still reading, thanks - also, "We" means you!).
