SIM is part of the group of primary health centers under the Ryan White Part C Consortium of the Lares Health Center to provide services to HIV + Positive patients. Since 1996, we have been offering these services to patients with HIV.
Each CSI has an HIV specialist and two case managers. These staff are responsible for guaranteeing these patients access to services, as well as actively participating in educational activities and campaigns to increase knowledge about HIV.
The purpose of Ryan White Part C funds is to ensure access to people infected with HIV and that their families also have appropriate medical care.
