Medical Case Management consist of a range of client-centered services of the HIV continuum for eligible PLWHA. The goal of MCM is to move clients to self-sufficiency and get to *undetectable, copies of HIV are so low that the virus cannot be passed on sexually.
*Fewer than 50 copies of HIV per milliliter of blood (<50 copies/mL)
The Community Wellness Project provides sexual health education to individuals about HIV/AIDS, how the virus is transmitted, PrEP / nPEP, and new terminology such as Undetectable equals Untransmittable (U=U).
Targeted Testing is a strategy, which allows CWP to focus on individuals who are members of communities with a high prevalence of HIV in the St. Louis TGA. We use two different HIV testing kits. Our one-minute Insti kit detects the presence of infection via the antibody. Our Determine kit detects the presence of infection via the antibody and the p24 antigen.
Additional testing performed by a medical provider can confirm infection, measure viral load, and prescribe medication to treat infection. The goal of testing is to help link newly diagnosed individuals into care and prevent new HIV incidences (new HIV cases) by knowing their HIV status, wearing condoms, using lube, and taking PrEP.
CWP can refer eligible clients to services such as:
Medical Case Management
HIV Care and Treatment
Health, Housing, and Utility Assistance
PrEP / nPEP Services
Medication Adherence Counseling
Substance Use / Harm Reduction
Psychosocial Support Services
