Oregon HIV Hotline May Close

January 8, 2013

Willamette Week reports Cascade AIDS Project may soon close its HIV hotline. With dwindling call volumes, the $75,000 per year now dedicated to the hotline might be spent more effectively elsewhere. We think the drop off in calls results from better public information about HIV, especially knowledge that HIV is treatable and survivable -- a big step forward from the blind terror of the early 1980s. Willamette Week does note, however, that Oregon lags behind the nation as a whole in early diagnosis and connection to care, and that other outreach efforts are needed.
