The CHACR offers a variety of prevention and treatment options for both HIV-positive patients and those at high-risk. As part of Boston Medical Center we are committed to providing exceptional care, without exception to each of our patients. Our highly trained, compassionate staff is deeply devoted to the work we do both in the clinic and in the community.
Each patient is surrounded by an experienced team of medical professionals that comprises a nurse, physician and medical case manager, with immediate access to mental health clinicians, substance abuse counselors and clinical pharmacists, as needed. They provide culturally sensitive, reliable and effective HIV/AIDS primary and specialty medical care, mental health and social services, medication adherence counseling, and access to new drug therapies that may not be available to the general public. Special care and advice are available to HIV-positive women, including women who are pregnant or would like to become pregnant. Educational programs, support groups and access in the same clinic to liver, lung, cancer and psychiatric HIV/AIDS specialists make the CHACR a highly effective multidisciplinary care provider. The CHACR also offers free HIV and STD testing, education and counseling and helps newly diagnosed patients obtain prompt access to medical care. Multilingual providers are available.
The CHACR staff creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient. This involves assessing the patient's overall health to ensure the best medications are prescribed, creating a nutrition plan and considering a variety of mental health options, from psychiatrists to support groups. The doctors in the CHACR are at the forefront of HIV/AIDS research and treatment. Patients are secure in the knowledge that their caregivers have strong, specialized backgrounds in caring for patients with HIV/AIDS and their unique needs.
