VCU HIV Services coordinates clinical, research, educational and support activities at Virginia Commonwealth University, within the greater Richmond area and throughout Virginia.

Who we are

Established in 1986, VCU HIV Services is the largest and broadest of its kind in Virginia. Our mission is to improve the health and social condition of persons living with HIV and to prevent the spread of the disease.

We combine excellence in HIV clinical care with globally relevant clinical, translational and prevention research. Our team works on multidisciplinary HIV-related education activities and public policy throughout Virginia.

VCU HIV Services has grown over the years with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Virginia General Assembly and the Virginia Department of Health.

Through partnerships with local and national HIV/AIDS service organizations, health care professionals, educators and researchers, we offer services to both patients and providers.
