Antiviral Linkage Initiative (ALI)
The ALI program provides HIV and Hepatitis-C testing services. Our mission is to help individuals manage their HIV and Hepatitis-C exposure risks and treatment options by providing personalized support, education and access to health resources. Our staff work with individuals newly diagnosed with HIV and HCV through our rapid testing initiative as well as with those who are living with HIV and/or HCV. ALI welcomes the opportunity to provide HIV and HCV testing and linkage to care services for city organizations and at community and outreach events. We provide all testing supplies & materials, and we will need a confidential space to discuss results with the client.
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) Health Education
It is important to know your sexual health status in order to take control of your overall health. You also need to know how to protect yourself and others in order to stop the spread of disease. BCRI seeks to raise community awareness of STI health risks and how individuals can control the spread of disease. We provide STI education, prevention and outreach at your site or event, as well as to those in BCRI's residential treatment programs.
