The Sentinel reported that the New Jersey Medical School at Rutgers University and New Jersey Poison Information & Education System are offering assistance to all, including teens and young adults infected with HIV/AIDS, through the New Jersey AIDS/HIV/STD Hotline. The hotline’s HIV/AIDS Navigator Project connects individuals who are HIV-positive but no longer receiving treatment with a “navigator” who assists in getting them the help they need when they call (800) 624–2377, text/e-mail email@example.com, or chat via www.njhivstdline.org. Individuals who have questions after receiving a positive test result or who have other queries concerning HIV or STDs may contact the HIV/AIDS Navigator Project as well. Operators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to calls confidentially and free of charge.
