CAMBA's Case Management and Health Education Services Program (CHES) provides community based HIV/AIDS case management and health education services that focus on People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), that have either fallen out of or are sporadically engaged in HIV care and treatment. This dynamic model of case management and health education services will actively address the multiple needs of PLWHA and remove the barriers that prevent retention in care and treatment. The program will service people living with HIV/AIDS in Brooklyn that are not Medicaid eligible. These will include both unauthorized immigrants and people whose income makes them ineligible for Medicaid, but who cannot afford private insurance. This case management model serves as a bridge to help consumers learn to navigate the health care and support system and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively self-manage their care. It also helps support consumer entry into the full continuum of care that is available. Case management efforts must focus on improving health outcomes, ultimately leading to viral suppression.
