ACCESS provides comprehensive HIV services for all populations. ACCESS' HIV services model focuses on direct care, prevention, education and case management support.
- Confidential testing and counseling
- General health care
- Infectious disease specialty care
- Mental health services
- Spiritual care services
- Case management and linkage to other social and support services
All patients with HIV are assigned to a case manager trained in the needs of patients infected with HIV. The case manager works closely with the medical provider to ensure services are coordinated, comprehensive and appropriate to each patient's needs. Our case managers also refer patients for other social services throughout ACCESS' large network of partner agencies.
While we provide high quality treatment for those living with HIV, we also work very hard to prevent new infections. ACCESS' prevention specialists provide prevention education to adults and youth in various locations throughout Chicago.
