Duke provides care for the full spectrum of infectious diseases, including extensive services for treatment and management of HIV. Services are available for patients of all ages.
Duke’s infectious disease specialists formulate tailored treatment plans, including specific, appropriate antibiotic therapy, for each patient.
Many patients with HIV can benefit from participating in clinical trials. Learn about available trials.
Infectious disease services are provided by the Duke Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine and by the Duke Department of Pediatrics.
Responding to the emergence worldwide of infectious diseases such as AIDS, the aging population in the U.S., and the need for infection control policies and practices, Duke’s Division of Infectious Diseases and International Health has grown and expanded to meet the demand for subspecialists in this field.
Since its founding in 1985, the Duke Infectious Diseases clinic has treated more than 6,000 patients with HIV/AIDS.
The division is an active partner in the effort of the North Carolina Tuberculosis Control Program to virtually eliminate TB in the state by the year 2010. The medical director of the North Carolina TB Control Program, Carol Dukes Hamilton, MD, is a physician in the division.
