Follow-up Care & Support

Once your treatment for an AIDS-related cancer is complete, we will likely recommend that you continue to take highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) to prevent your cancer from returning and new cancers from developing. Our multidisciplinary team of doctors will work with you to implement strategies that reduce your risk of side effects and of developing other AIDS-associated cancers.

Our Resources for Life After Cancer program provides a full range of educational support services, including individual and family counseling, periodic lectures or workshops to provide medical updates, and practical guidance on employment and insurance issues.
