Comprehensive HIV Program

 

The Temple Comprehensive HIV Program provides multidisciplinary primary and HIV specialty care for over 750 patients.  The services include routine and specialized gynecological procedures, prenatal consultative care, nutritional counseling and assessment, case management and access to clinical trials.  The staff includes an amalgam of general internists and infectious disease physicians and pharmacists in a collaborative ambulatory practice with nurse practitioners and infectious disease fellows.  The program is part of the Ryan White Title 1 participants in the Philadelphia metropolitan area and serves traditionally underrepresented minorities and women in a practice setting, fully integrated into the ambulatory medical offices.  We have multilingual staff who speak Spanish, French and Dutch.

 

The Temple Comprehensive HIV Program is also involved in community outreach with presentations to patient groups, AIDS service organizations, medical staff in hospitals and prisons.  We have an annual HIV testing day program in North Philadelphia that promotes prevention and counseling for the general community.  We are also active members of community organizations that focus on prevention of interpersonal violence, hepatitis education and outreach, and needle exchange programs.
