Is promoting HIV/AIDS prevention awareness, education, support and access to PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention) important to you?
A NOTE from our HIV Services Team: In this time of disruption and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many everyday things may become unusually stressful. Each of us may be taking different steps to keep ourselves safe and healthy, as we have been instructed by our Public Health leaders. WCHC fully supports Sonoma County’s “Shelter-in-Place” order to protect ourselves and our community. We also want you to know that we remain committed to being here for our communities and providing you accurate and hopefully helpful information as you make the decisions that are best for you and your health.
“Social distancing,” and even just the specter of COVID-19, can result in anxiety and loneliness. People with mental health or substance use challenges may be particularly vulnerable to the stresses of isolation, but everyone may be affected. Remember that “social distancing” really just means physical distancing (6 feet) from people who are not in your household. It is very important to maintain social contacts, as much as possible, during this stressful time. Especially if you are staying in your home, keep in touch with others through phone or video calls, and social media. Contact your health care providers if you experience more depression, anxiety, or other symptoms of stress.
West County Health Centers (WCHC) is dedicated to reducing the number of new HIV infections in our communities to zero. Our plan to do this has multiple steps, beginning with immediate linkage to care at the point of testing, ongoing provider and staff education, visible prevention services, and high level primary care with targeted outreach.
West County Health Centers mission is to provide comprehensive, quality, and accessible health care services to the communities of western Sonoma County. We are a cohesive team of health care providers, support staff, and volunteers dedicated to wellness, compassion, affordability and excellence of care. We believe in non-judgmental and equal care to all members of our diverse community, and our vision is of “Healthy communities building relationships and partnerships that support health and wellbeing for all people”.
