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.

Each clinic provides services pertaining to their specialty area.

  • Ongoing treatment and medical care
