Treatment Cost... - KH
Feb 6, 2001

doc, how much do an individual need to have treatment and medication?? how much do a person will pay for hiv test?? What if the person is not that rich(few money only)?? Hope for your kind advise. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

In US dollars HIV care often runs about $1200-$1500 per month. HIV tests run around $35 but often are available at no charge through many health departments and community clinics.

Few people could afford the cost of meds out of their own pocket. In the US insurance pays for the care or there are some special programs for people with little money. The costs are too high for many areas of the world to afford them but efforts are under way to address that (see UNAIDS). KH
