Community-Based Health Services

AccessMatters is known locally for its community engagement and health promotion work to improve health outcomes for HIV affected women and families,  HIV positive consumers, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons. Community-based services include screening for HIV/STD and pregnancy with an active linkage to care component. AccessMatters continuously monitors areas with high rates of sexual health disparities and deploys its community-based HIV and STD testing services into those areas.  Through its community-based programming, AccessMatters is recognized for its success in locating individuals with chronic health conditions (e.g. HIV disease) who have been lost to care and reconnecting them to services.  AccessMatters community health workers are also trained as Affordable Care Act (ACA) Certified Applications Counselors and educate consumers about eligibility for health coverage and assist them with accessing coverage through the Marketplace.
