Case Management and ASF

Dear friends,

ASF is joining the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau in emphasizing the importance of case management to the health and well-being of our clients, in particular, and our community, as a whole.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released some startling statistics…

  • 1 in 5 people living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. don’t know their HIV status.
  • 2 in 5 have not seen a primary care doctor.

That first statistic obviously emphasizes the need for HIV testing. The second indicates the need for case management. Case management can be complicated to explain. But simply put, it connects clients to medical care and helps ensure the receipt of treatment. The ultimate goal of ASF’s case managers is to return our clients to self-sufficiency.

I would like to thank the generous public companies and private foundations that realize the importance of case management to the community and have supported ASF’s HIV and Medical Case Management programs over the last 3 years. Many thanks to…

  • Western Digital
  • Kaiser Permanente Foundation
  • Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian
  • Kaiser Foundation Hospitals
  • Employees Community Fund of Boeing California
  • Community Care Foundation, Inc.
  • Wells Fargo Foundation

You’ll be able to read more about case management as the cover story in the February-April issue of ASF’s quarterly news magazine, The Voice. It’s entitled “Making the Case for Case Management” and I encourage you to read it once it’s published. You can also visit the ASF website Case Management page by clicking here.
