How We Accomplish Our Mission

k6241598

At HIV Alliance, we accomplish our mission through:

  • Youth and adult education
  • Prevention programs that target key communities
  • Programs and services that help people living with HIV maintain and improve their physical, social, and mental health

Initially, we provided HIV education, prevention and care services in Lane County only. However, over the years, the structure and funding around HIV has changed. As a result our region has expanded to include eleven counties in Oregon: Lane, Douglas, Josephine, Lake, Klamath, Jackson, Coos, Curry, Lincoln, Clatsop and Marion.

In 2007 we teamed up with the Lane Community College Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene schools to provide low-cost, comprehensive dental services to people living with HIV/AIDS.  Over the years we have partnered with other HIV care providers and community colleges to offer dental services to people living with HIV/AIDS in as many as thirty-one counties across the state.

Hepatitis C has emerged as a significant problem in Oregon especially for people who inject drugs.  Because we already provide a variety of services to these individuals we now provide Hepatitis C screenings to individuals at-risk for acquiring this disease in targeted counties in our region.  We also provide support to people living with Hepatitis C by providing basic needs assistance, support groups and assistance in accessing medical and social support services.

As an organization we operate under a framework of core values that not only inform but direct our work.  Our core values include: collaboration, empowerment, adaptability and innovation, continuous improvement, and non-judgment.
