ALAC helps connect people living with HIV/AIDS with healthcare and other services
Alabama Latino AIDS Coalition
Together with medical providers and community liaisons, ALAC connects people with healthcare. They work with Latinx living with HIV/AIDS in Alabama, their partners and their families. They provide support to follow up with treatment as well as other supportive services.
Here are just a few of the countless ways they help:
Health fairs—including testing for HIV, blood pressure and glucose
Legal resources—including financial immigration services and free legal clinics
Healthcare and dental care—including medical interpretation and translation
Health insurance enrollment
HIV and health education
Mental health and substance abuse services
Domestic violence services
Case management and referrals
Peer support and support groups
Transportation—to medical and/or legal appointments
Policy advocacy and leadership opportunities
If you’d like to find a way to put your Spanish or professional (medical, nursing, legal, etc.) skills to good use, or you simply want to find a way to love your neighbor or do some community service, AIDS Alabama’s Latino Outreach Program has plenty of opportunities for you to make a difference.

ALAC and friends also provide the following services to the Hispanic / Latinx communities:
Access to healthcare and other supportive services at no cost
Free HIV and STI testing
Monthly legal clinic in collaboration with Legal Services of Alabama (Jefferson County domestic violence victims have priority)
Health fairs in the community with free health screenings and referrals
Free assistance for health insurance including Medicaid and All Kids
Advocacy presentations and trainings
ALAC plans to offer bilingual mental health services in the future.
Looking ahead, ALAC wants to provide bilingual mental health services through the Living Well Outpatient Center. These would be for community members impacted by HIV, including teens 18 and up, families and partners.
