Linkage to Care
Linkage to Care is a service that identifies and monitors individuals as they transition into HIV medical care. Links newly HIV diagnosed or out of care individuals to early intervention services if needed.
Early Intervention Services
Early Intervention Services (EIS) increases a HIV positive individual’s awareness of their HIV status and facilitates access to the HIV care system and crisis needs interventions if needed. EIS focuses on health literacy and HIV medical education needs while linking and following the individual through the initial stages of HIV medical care, medication, and treatment adherence.
If you are a HIV positive individual out of care, you can contact our EIS coordinator for help accessing HIV care in our community or finding information about programs to address interventions that have kept you from getting HIV care.
