The DC metropolitan area has the highest level of HIV infection in the U.S, and the impact of HIV/AIDS on the Latino community is increasing. According to the Latino Commission on AIDS, “Hispanics/Latinos progress to AIDS faster than any other racial or ethnic group with 42% being diagnosed with AIDS within 12 months after learning of their positive HIV status.” Through its HIV Case Management program, La Clínica aims to diminish these health disparities.

Navigating the health care system can be vexing for many of La Clínica’s clients and those that are afflicted with HIV or AIDS can find it even more difficult to receive the services they most need. La Clínica not only provides the medical assistance that HIV positive patients require, but gives HIV medical case management to help  bridge the gap between medical and social services. This service can be on a short-term or long-term basis and is offered to qualifying patients.

Case management ranges from enrolling eligible clients into Medicaid, Medicare and other entitlement programs to helping patients apply for medication assistance and specialized HIV case management care.

Through its HIV case Management program La Clínica del Pueblo gives a support system, ensures adherence to treatment and helps HIV positive patients to manage their illness and lead healthy and productive lives.
