At CHC we believe that our patients should be empowered to be active participants in their care, and recognize that treating the whole person, not just the disease, is essential. We always welcome newly diagnosed patients with HIV/AIDS, and those living with HIV/AIDS that are new in our community. In addition, CHC provides support services to partners of our HIV patients who are HIV negative needing Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to lower their chances of getting infected.
