The mission of AID Atlanta is to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life of its client members and the community by breaking barriers and building community.
AID Atlanta is moving closer to achieving our vision to serve as a patient centered medical home (PCMH) and behavioral health center for HIV positive and HIV negative patients. We recently broke ground on a new on-site pharmacy at our 1605 Peachtree headquarters and launching an expanded behavioral health program that will target the psychosocial barriers that prevent healthy secondary prevention and medical adherence behaviors. We are on target to achieve significant milestones towards the Agency’s transformation.
Expand behavioral health and case management services to existing members and via partnerships and begin to bill third party payers and patients in May 2014 (achieved).
Implement a wellness clinic (Chiropractic, Nutrition & Massage Therapy) (achieved).
Implement a 340B and retail pharmacy (achieved).
Implement a family medical clinic for HIV positive patients that offers OB/GYN and Pediatrics care with lab and radiology services (on schedule).
Implement preventative dental services (on schedule).
In the area of HIV outreach and education, AID Atlanta has been actively working in communities of high impact to reach those most at risk of HIV and/or living without knowing their status. During the reporting period of January 1, 2014 - May 30, 2014 we have accomplished the following:
2,398 people tested; 79 HIV+; 3.3% positivity rate.
68 African American women have completed the VOICES intervention.
202 women have completed SISTA (started in July 2013 to date).
3,625 women connected to HIV testing, education and referrals through local community outreach.
MSM Outreach recruited young adult men through targeted Brother 2 Brother, Brother Speaks, and Mgroup initiatives and tailored intervention settings.
