It is our mission to decrease HIV/AIDS and STI while addressing other vital health disparities such as Hepatitis C and smoking in marginalized communities. Ultimately our vision is to,” create and sustain links to a greater quality of life.”
Our programs provide Health Education, Training, Counseling, Testing, linkage to care, and outreach services including developing and expanding culturally appropriate campaigns and messaging. It is our goal to increase access to culturally competent information and services while increasing the number of individuals aware of their status and engaged in care. Through this, we will decrease the time to viral suppression for HIV positive patients within our communities while further raising sexual health awareness to those whom we serve.
We believe in a holistic approach to health education, prevention, and support.
We recognize HIV and SUD as manageable, chronic disease.
We acknowledge the presence and impact of racism, sexism, heterosexism, homophobia, classism, and other forms of discrimination on our lives as people.
LinQ for Life believes that ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 is possible, but only by closing any gaps between people who have access to prevention, treatment, and support services that allow individuals to remain in a care continuum. Closing this important social justice gap means empowering and enabling Americans to access the preventive and wellness services they need.
