Program areas at Alliance for Positive Change

Treatment adherence: every year brings new hiv treatment options -- and new challenges to staying on track with complicated regimens. Through workshops and one-on-one counseling, Alliance helps people living with hiv/aids stick to treatments, manage side effects, communicate with doctors, and learn more about treatment options. Alliance offers a comprehensive treatment adherence program to help participants achieve and sustain viral load suppression ("vls"), reduce hospitalization, and improve quality of life through pharmacy access centers at Alliance community centers in Washington heights, midtown, and the bronx that enhance access to medication, education, and treatment planning; peer support and medical case management that ensures sustained access to medical care, behavioral health, and related support services (including food & nutrition services); incentives as part of our progressive patient-centered adherence plan with directly observed therapy ("dot") at Alliance community centers, virtually, and in patient homes; and undetectables!, a multi-level approach to achieving vls, including care management, social media campaign and quarterly incentives. Alliance's treatment adherence program empowers individuals to get well and stay well and increase adherence to a medical treatment plan leading to viral suppression that reduces healthcare costs and improves health outcomes.
Supportive housing: Alliance provides individualized housing placement assistance, as well as long-term transitional and permanent housing through a 90-unit congregant supportive housing program in the bronx. Alliance offers an array of health promotion and treatment adherence services that promote harm reduction, long-term recovery, wellness, and self-sufficiency for people living with multiple chronic conditions.
Care management: Alliance's innovative care management services provide a continuum of medical care, mental health counseling, peer-to-peer education, harm reduction, and related support services. Our partnerships with area hospitals and health centers allow us to bring people living with hiv/aids and other chronic conditions comprehensive care, services, and support. We help clients stay connected by escorting them to appointments, visiting them at home if they are too ill to travel, and acting as their advocate. Alliance's comprehensive care management services include collocating care coordinators in clinics of area hospitals to support patients in consistently engaging in medical care and supporting adherence to medications and treatment regimens. To address issues faced by women with children and survivors of domestic violence, we also offer family counseling and facilitation of legal services.
