Linkage to Care
The Linkage to Care Coordinator provides options for care to each client that best suit his or her needs. The client’s needs are assessed, and the options are given that will eliminate barriers in getting into care. This will allow each client to be more comfortable and feel more support. The linkage coordinator explores the best options for care (Ryan White or Private ID), explains in detail the support services offered, and will find care for a client that needs to relocate and move to another service area. The main duty is to ensure each client can continue his or her care no matter what circumstances they may face.
If you are not associated with a patient at our clinic, HIV tests are available for free at all County Health Departments.
We offer confidential HIV testing for partners and spouses of our clients at the Specialty Care Clinic. To ensure that an individual can be tested, we strongly encourage individuals to call and make an appointment as walk-ins cannot always be accommodated.
Make sure you bring a form of photo identification with you to your testing appointment.
Which test do we use?
We use the rapid INSTI HIV-1/ HIV-2 Antibody Test to screen for HIV antibodies. The INSTI is quick, painless and only requires a pinprick of blood.
With the Insti test, your results are read in 60 seconds.
