Editorís Note: If you are newly diagnosed with HIV, one of the most important things you can do is visit your nearest ASO (AIDS Service Organization).
What is an ASO? Although each one defines its mission a little differently, what they all have in common is that they help people with HIV connect with the information and resources they need. Depending on where you live, you may find they can hook you up with everything from primary health care and medications to housing, drug or alcohol abuse treatment, transportation, psychological counseling and legal representation. They have answers to questions you donít even know to ask. And they know of benefits you may be entitled to that youíve never even heard of.
Because they play such an important role in the HIV healthcare system, we are starting a series of articles to spotlight really exceptional ASOs around the country. Click below to read about these outstanding ASOs. If you feel your ASO should be featured here, send an email to:firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know why!
