HIV/AIDS and Health Outreach
Park has the fourth highest rate of HIV/AIDS infection out of Chicago’s neighborhoods.
The HIV/AIDS programming at HACC works with community members to distribute information about HIV/AIDS through group and individual education and provides free HIV testing and health referrals.
HACC’s Community Health Workers* attend local events and attend health fairs sharing their knowledge about HIV/AIDS and HACC services.
The program also distributes free condoms to populations that tend to experience higher rates of HIV/AIDS, such as people of color, women, seniors, and cisgender men who have sex with cisgender men.
*They also conduct educational sessions about nutritional assistance to seniors, blood pressure screenings, prenatal classes, medical IDs and much more.
