Program Summary: CAMBA Case Management and Health Education Services 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. It also helps support clients' entry into the full continuum of care that is available.
The program serves people living with HIV/AIDS in NYC; these will include both unauthorized immigrants and people whose income makes them ineligible for Medicaid.
This case management model serves as a bridge to help clients learn to navigate the health care and support system and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively self- manage their care.
Health Education efforts focus on improving health outcomes, ultimately leading to viral suppression. Health Education Services are provided in individual counseling and health education groups.
Eligibility: HIV-positive single adults and families with
very low-income. Must be residents of New York City
Clients Served Annually: 90
