Sioux City, Iowa "One-Stop Shop" Profiled for Awareness Efforts, Services

August 28, 2009

KPTH.com profiled the Sioux City, Iowa-based Siouxland Community Health Center, "a one-stop shop" for people living with HIV, which is seeking to raise community awareness of the virus. HIV specialist Thor Swanson said the "CDC is saying some of the more rural states are seeing substantial increases in numbers." In addition to posting HIV awareness messages on billboards, the center provides free testing, offers a HIV drug assistance program and hosts a "monthly HIV conference to keep health care providers updated about the disease," according to the news channel. Swanson called for addressing HIV on a larger scale by ensuring pregnant women are tested, treatment is provided and a vaccine is developed (Thomas, 8/27).
