GEMS has an effective HIV/AIDS Disease Management Programme (DMP) for our members. If you or one of your dependants is living with HIV/AIDS, registering on the HIV/AIDS DMP can give you the support you need to lead a healthy and productive life.
For GEMS members and dependants who are HIV positive and decide to join the programme, special care is taken to maintain their confidentiality. This programme is managed by a team of healthcare professionals separately from other Scheme programmes and the employer. The HIV/AIDS DMP has its own confidential contact channels, which are:
If patients register on the HIV/AIDS DMP, they will have access to the following benefits:
Patients need to call 0860 436 736 if they have had accidental exposure to HIV so that appropriate Post-exposure Prophylaxis can be arranged.
Step 1: Patients who do not know their HIV status can ask their doctor or clinic to test them. GEMS will pay for this test and the doctor will be informed of the results.
Step 2: Patients who are HIV positive can download the application form or obtain one by calling 0860 4367 36 using the "please call me number" 083 843 6764 from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm and Saturday from 8am to 12pm or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Step 4: The completed form can be faxed to the confidential toll-free fax number 0800 4367 329 or emailed to email@example.com.
Step 5: We will contact the patient to discuss the outcome of their application.
