Case Management & Health Education Service (CHES)

CAMBA Case Management and Health Education Services provides community based HIV/ AIDS case management and health education services that focus on People Living with HIV/ AIDS (PLWHA), that have either fallen out of, or are sporadically engaged in, HIV care and treatment.

This dynamic model of case management and health education services actively addresses the multiple needs of PLWHA and removes the barriers that prevent retention in care and treatment. It also helps support clients’ entry into the full continuum of care that is available.

The CHES program serves as a bridge to help clients learn to navigate the health care and support system and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively self-manage their care. Our staff provides individual counseling, and group education sessions. The program focuses on improving health outcomes, ultimately leading to viral suppression.

CHES serves HIV-positive single adults and families with very low-incomes who are residents of New York City. The program accepts unauthorized im​migrants and low-income people who are ineligible for Medicaid. The program is funded by the New York State Department of Health, AIDS Institute and federal funding through the Ryan White Act​.​

If you, a family member or friend needs help maintaining their HIV care and treatment, please call us at (718) 462-8654. Services are provided at our Community Office.
