Northwest Pennsylvania Rural AIDS Alliance

Mission:

Our mission is to work in unison with the communities of northwest Pennsylvania to improve, protect and promote their health by being their health care partner in the struggle against and treatment of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C.

We will provide access to high quality, comprehensive early intervention services for the medically underserved individuals in our region.

We will provide patients with the highest quality medical care, performed by trained, competent specialists in the field of HIV, utilizing the best available medical practices.

Program Highlights/Accomplishments:

The Northwest PA Rural AIDS Alliance is a grant-funded program under Clarion University of Pennsylvania. It was established in 1991 to meet the needs of HIV positive people living within the thirteen counties in Northwest PA. Due to an increase in those co-infected with Hepatitis C the Alliance was funded in September 2010 under a Special Project of National Significance grant to begin the testing and treatment of those individuals co-infected with HIV and HCV.

The NW Alliance receives funding through:

  • The PA Department of Health, Bureau of Communicable Diseases, Division of HIV/AIDS.
  • Part B of the Ryan White CARE Act -Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)
  • State Appropriations
  • Part C of the Ryan White CARE Act from the Health Resources and Services Administration
