Living with HIV

Smoking and Tobacco

Smoking tobacco is the biggest health risk to people living with HIV. Smoking raises the risk for serious health issues including heart and lung disease, cancer and infections such as pneumonia. People with HIV are more likely to develop these harmful consequences of smoking than those without HIV. We offer a smoking cessation program specially tailored to the needs of positive people.
