Connect to Care
Connect to care helps our clients with HIV find the resources they need to manage their medical care. The ultimate goal of the program is to connect (or re-connect) clients with a doctor or program that matches their needs. It is our goal to connect newly diagnosed clients to an infectious disease specialist within 1 week of testing positive. If you have a diagnosis of HIV but are not receiving care, we can also help get you into medical care. Getting connected to proper care and starting HIV antiretroviral therapy (ART) means staying healthier, living longer, and reducing the chances of transmitting HIV to other people.
Everything that we do is free of charge and maintaining your confidentiality is of utmost importance to us.
