NORWALK, Conn. - When World Health Clinicians opened its new doors at 618 West Ave. in Norwalk in June 2013, it began offering testing services, medical care and ongoing support through the various organizations that are housed under its one roof.
Circle Care Center (CCC) and Circle Care Center Pharmacy provide medical, prescription and testing services to local, regional and national patients, predominantly people in under-served communities (MSM, HIV-positive, people with STIs, chronic HCV and anyone regardless of their ability to pay) and the LGBTQ community. The combined services of Triangle Community Center and Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project provide support groups, social services and additional support services to local residents.
The model of World Health Clinicians is based on the Los Angeles LGBT Center, combining the services of local organizations to expand its resources to clients. The organization also spearheaded global initiatives such as HIV Equal ( www.HIVequal.org ) and BEAT AIDS Project Zimbabwe ( beat.worldhealthclinicians.org ) to bring HIV testing and medical care to communities that need it the most.
Each organization under the World Health Clinicians roof provides services to residents of the immediate vicinity, while also catering to residents of the tri-state area, New England and some as far as Tampa or Palm Springs. Nearly 40 percent of the patients who receive care from Circle Care Center require medical treatment specific to HIV/AIDS.
World Health Clinicians, along with Circle Care Center, Circle Care Center Pharmacy, Triangle Community Center and Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project, continues to maintain its high level of health, community and outreach services to the under-served and LGBTQ communities in and around Norwalk and the tri-state Area. It has also championed legislative initiatives such as the “Aid in Dying Act” and the “Cure for AIDS Act.” The organization has also recently generated interest in its clinical trial work.
