Altarum works to create, guide, and enhance prevention, treatment, and care solutions for national, regional, and local systems that impact communities affected by HIV/AIDS and other sexual health areas. Recognizing the ongoing need for public health programs and leadership that address prevention, testing, primary medical care, and treatment, Altarum has worked with many federal agencies and national organizations to strategically plan, develop, implement, and evaluate programs that serve people at risk for and living with HIV/AIDS and other sexual health areas. Our work is based on a systems approach whereby effective programs deliver prevention, care, treatment, and hope; public and private agencies make the best use of scarce resources to reach those most in need; and address cultural, social, and economic barriers.

Center for HIV and Sexual Health
Altarum creates systems-based solutions that support the sexual health and wellbeing of all people throughout their lifetime. Our team strategically plans, develops, implements, and evaluates HIV, sexually transmitted infection, viral hepatitis, and family planning programs that address sexual health and serve diverse age groups and communities.
Altarum is creating new stories about sexual health and HIV/AIDS, stories based in a systems approach where effective programs reach people with messages of respect, responsibility, prevention, and treatment. In these stories, communities and governments make the best use of scarce resources to reach diverse people with effective messages and services, and programs that overcome cultural, social, and economic barriers.
