Services Overview

The tools available today to fight HIV are more effective than ever. We now know that people living with extremely low levels of HIV will not pass the virus along to others. This “viral suppression” involves many factors, the most important of which is that persons living with HIV remain engaged in medical care and medication adherence. Our housing, support and empowerment services have proven to reinforce and support medical adherence, leading to viral suppression. PrEP, an effective daily pill taken to prevent the transmission of HIV, is becoming increasingly accessible. Through these elements and traditional tried and true approaches like increasing access to testing, advocating condom use, education, reducing barriers, and raising awareness, together, WE CAN End HIV in Kentucky.

It's time to acknowledge that "Housing is Healthcare" and unlock the immense "Healing Power of Home." #AVOLforKY #housingishealthcare

We must urge policymakers, healthcare providers, and the community to recognize that housing is a fundamental human right, not a luxury. Investing in affordable housing and support services is an investment in a healthier, more just, and prosperous future. #AVOLforKY #housingishealthcare

Support Mirror Twin Brewing and AVOL next week!

Recognizing that "Housing is Healthcare" and understanding the "Healing Power of Home" is not just a moral obligation but of local, national, and global significance. AVOL Kentucky's programs show that we can reshape healthcare and promote well-being for all. #AVOLforKY ...#housingishealthcare
