The Denver Office of HIV Resources is responsible for investing federal funding in HIV-specific care and related services through a network of comprehensive, cost-effective programs. These programs benefit people living with HIV/AIDS and those affected by the disease who reside in the six-county (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson) Denver Transitional Grant Area (TGA), by offering access to services such as primary health care and HIV/AIDS pharmaceutical services. The office also provides guidance and technical assistance to HIV care and service providers to ensure that people living with, or affected by, HIV/AIDS in the Denver TGA receive the highest quality care and support.
