Denver HIV Resources (DHR) 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 HIV/AIDS 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. DHR 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.

Denver Public Health & Environment is a member of the Metro Denver Partnership for Health, a collaboration among the public health agencies serving the seven-county Denver metropolitan region made up of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties. Nearly 3 million Coloradans, 60 percent of the state’s population, live in the Metro region. The Partnership collaborates with regional leaders in health care, human services, behavioral health, environment, philanthropy, education, business, local government and others to achieve its goals of advancing health equity across the region. In 2016, the Partnership identified four priority areas of focus including data sharing, healthy eating and active living, behavioral health, and partner alignment and formalized its approach to collaboration in the Metro Denver Partnership for Health Roadmap.
