Why We Walk
THE CHASE BREXTON HIV AND AIDS STORY
The Baltimore AIDS Walk & Music Festival is a fundraising event benefiting the high-quality, comprehensive, and intensive HIV and AIDS programs of Chase Brexton Health Care, a non-profit community health organization, and its Community Partners. Money raised at this year’s AIDS Walk & Music Festival will help strengthen and expand HIV and AIDS education, testing, prevention, and treatment programs
Founded in 1978 as a gay men’s health clinic, Chase Brexton Health Care was on the frontlines of the AIDS epidemic when it first began to appear in our community in the early 80s. From our earliest days as an all-volunteer organization to the organization we are today employing more than 400 and serving more than 40,000 patients annually, Chase Brexton’s service to individuals living with HIV and AIDS has remained unparalleled.
Our HIV and AIDS programming and services include:
- Physical exams & ongoing follow-up visits
- Treatment for co-infections like hepatitis C
- Peer advocacy and case management support for issues including insurance and the financial burdens of the disease
- Intensive educational and adherence support for HIV medications & people living with HIV
- On-site pharmacy with pharmacists specifically trained and experienced in HIV medications
