Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

In advance of National HIV Testing Day on June 27, 2015, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) is pleased to announce a community outreach partnership with Harmony Health Plan of Illinois, a subsidiary of WellCare Health Plans, Inc. The campaign, “Together Continuing 30 Years of Action to Change the Story of HIV,” aims to build awareness of HIV testing, care and holistic health services in Chicago communities.

WellCare coordinates health care services for people eligible for government-sponsored coverage, such as Medicaid and Medicare. The AFC and Harmony campaign will launch in conjunction with a Harmony sponsorship of Step Up. Get Tested., which is a Chicagoland HIV Testing Collaborative. During the month of June, Harmony’s sponsorship of Step Up. Get Tested., will support an HIV testing and linkage to care campaign for Cook County residents. The campaign goal is to test over 5,000 community members.
