FAIRBANKS — With nearly half of HIV-infected Alaskans lost to follow-up care with their health care providers, the state is launching a new effort to better link those patients to treatment.

The statistics of HIV and AIDS patients in Alaska show that they’re less likely to be linked to care than in other parts of the U.S., where about two-thirds of patients are receiving ongoing care.

About 40 percent meet the case definition of achieving viral suppression.
