HIV/AIDS Prevention

The South Dakota HIV/AIDS Prevention Program is committed to achieving the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy:

  • Reduce the number of people who become infected with HIV;
  • Increase access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV; and
  • Reduce HIV-related health disparities. 

The state receives federal funds from CDC under Funding Opportunity Announcement PS 12-1201 to provide HIV prevention services.  Services offered include Partner Services, HIV testing, Comprehensive Risk Counseling and Services (CRCS), capacity building, and emergency assistance. 

Over 500 South Dakotans are living with HIV/AIDS.  The Department of Health seeks to ensure every positive person is aware of their status, linked to quality medical care, and provided with the support they need to lead long, healthy lives. 

HIV prevention contractors are available in the areas of the state with the highest disease burden.  For more information. or to contact one of these agencies, click on a link below.
