HIV Case Management Services

The goal of Five Horizons’ HIV Case Management Services is to eliminate barriers to care for those living with HIV.  Financial challenges, housing issues, lack of transportation, or mental health struggles can all make it difficult for an individual to consistently remain in care.  Individuals who are consistent in attendance at medical appointments and in usage of medications will be healthier and will be unlikely to spread HIV to others.
