Chicago Dept. of Public Health: Five Times More Residents Receiving HIV Care

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently announced that so far this year, the city has served 1,814 people living with HIV in Chicago as the city continues to expand HIV primary care support. Now in the third year of the HIV primary care expansion partnership between CDPH, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and Howard Brown Health, the program is on track to serve five times as many individuals than were served in prior years. This milestone is thanks to this expanded partnership following Mayor Emanuel’s call for greater collaboration between CDPH and community providers to serve more residents living with HIV.
