The Division of HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis works to promote public health and enhance the quality of life for Indiana residents by the prevention, intervention, and treatment of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. This mission will be accomplished through policy and resource development, clinical data collection and analysis, research, education, prevention programs, disease detection, and the provision of treatment services.
The Division of HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis will identify and assess the needs of the citizens of Indiana for prevention services and health care related to HIV and other STDs. We envision the elimination of the transmission of HIV and other STDs and the provision of the equiable distribution of health resources to ensure a quality life for each infected individual. We will partner with a full complement of related safety net providers, agencies and businesses.

Each year on June 27, we observe National HIV Testing Day. On this day, we unite with partners, health departments, and other organizations to raise awareness and plan events about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis of HIV.
This year’s theme, “Doing It My Way,” highlights how and why people make testing part of their lives—on their terms and in their way. Doing It My Way encourages individuals to share their personal testaments of why testing is important, what motivates them to get tested and stay healthy, and how they get tested—be it at home, at the clinic, or with the company of a friend or loved one.
CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care.
