The Johns Hopkins Division of Infectious Diseases works to prevent and to treat illness, disability and death caused by infectious diseases. In the past three decades, the HIV pandemic and its fellow travelers, tuberculosis, hepatitis C and sexually transmitted diseases have been among the biggest challenges. On a more local level, infections such as pneumonia or meningitis may cause severe illness or infections may complicate hospitalizations or surgeries. There are several Johns Hopkins Infectious Diseases clinics throughout Maryland. In most cases, a physician referral is required for outpatient evaluation. Please check with the clinic staff when you call for an appointment.
Patients receiving care in one of the Johns Hopkins Infectious Diseases outpatient clinics will receive services applicable to their situation and could include some of the following:
- Ongoing treatment and medical care
- Disease consultation
- On-site full-service pharmacy
- On-site phlebotomy services
- On-site treatment room for IV infusions
- Social Services and Case Management
- Nutrition counseling

- Substance abuse counseling and Buprenophine treatment
- Specialty care: Gynecology, Mental Health, Nephrology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Dermatology
- Management of hepatitis C and B coinfection
