Our Progress

Our Current Viral Load Suppression Rate

Our Goal Viral Load Suppression Rate

The term "viral load" refers to the amount of HIV in a sample of your blood. When your viral load is high, you have more HIV in your body, and that means your immune system is not fighting HIV as well.



I volunteer because Chattanooga CARES does amazing things for the community. I know that if Chattanooga CARES didn't exist, our city would be vastly different. Become a Volunteer
