HIV Care Outreach and Retention Program
The HIV Care Outreach and Retention Program serves individuals who are living with HIV, are not currently participating in the HIV system of care, and are lost to follow-up medical treatment. HIV care outreach specialists partner with medical providers to conduct locating and follow-up activities in the community and assist individuals to reconnect to the continuum of HIV medical and case management services. This program is supported by the AIDS Activities Coordinating Office (AACO) of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.

Philadelphia Hepatitis Outreach Project
Philadelphia Hepatitis Outreach Project (P-HOP) conducts community-based hepatitis prevention education, screening, testing and linkage to medical care and support services. Outreach services are implemented in substance abuse treatment and public housing facilities, HIV early intervention programs, homeless shelters among others. Additionally, project staff conduct and participate in community health fairs which provide neighborhood residents with viral hepatitis-related health information and the opportunity to receive HCV counseling and screening services. Follow-up events are scheduled for each health fair to provide residents with their HCV screening results and facilitate referrals to confirmatory testing services for those who screened positive for HCV. All services are available in Spanish and English. This project is supported with funding from the Office of Addiction Services of the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Mental Retardation Services.
