Center for Infectious Diseases Programs
The UM Center for Infectious Diseases includes two programs dedicated to providing HIV/AIDS services: the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) and the JACQUES Initiative. As both programs operate differently from one another, a triage employee is on staff to help guide patients to the office best suited for their needs, and preferred model of care.
