Family HIV Program

The Family HIV Program, established in 1995, serves women, children, youth, and families infected with, affected by and at risk for HIV in Vermont and New Hampshire. We are committed to supporting local providers so that you and your family get the best care possible, both at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) and Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics and in the larger community.
