AIDS Care in Our Community
An HIV diagnosis is life changing, and getting the right treatment – both medically and psychologically – is imperative to getting one's life back on track.
The Partnership Comprehensive Care Practice of Drexel University College of Medicine has been providing excellent medical care to adults living with HIV/AIDS for 18 years. As the largest comprehensive HIV primary care practice in the region, it served almost 2,000 patients last year with primary and specialty HIV medical care.
Enhancing Quality of Life
The Partnership was created in 1993 with the mission to enhance the quality of life for persons with HIV/AIDS by providing comprehensive, integrated HIV care to all individuals regardless of their ability to pay. The cornerstone of our practice is the expert delivery of primary and specialty HIV medical care provided by a team of nurse practitioners and physicians with extensive training in HIV medicine, infectious diseases, primary care and women's health. Other services include specialized gynecological care, prenatal care, family planning services, rapid HIV testing and counseling, secondary prevention education, peer education, support groups, nutritional assessment, case management, pharmacy services, phlebotomy, on-site child care, clinical research studies, plus referrals to dental care, mental health and substance abuse treatment services.
Treatment With Everyone in Mind
In order to meet the language needs of patients, the Partnership has bilingual staff including four physicians, the office manager, family planning counselor, medical assistant and rapid HIV tester. The Partnership is sensitive to treating patients with diverse sexual orientations and gender expressions as well as a wide diversity of races, ethnicities, and religions.
