In collaboration with Charles Drew Oasis Health Services Clinic, SCHARP
provides mental health and case management services for persons with
HIV/AIDS who receive needed health services through the Charles Drew
Oasis Clinic. A minimum of 50% of services will be delivered in the
field to mentally ill individuals who are vulnerable due to risk of
homelessness, history of substance use and HIV/AIDS status.
Like many health problems, HIV disease disproportionately strikes people in poverty, racial/ethnic populations, and others who are under served by healthcare and prevention systems. HIV often leads to poverty due to costly healthcare or an inability to work that is often accompanied by a loss of employer-related health insurance.
