Founded in 1986 as a nonprofit agency, Maui AIDS Foundation (MAF) assists hundreds of residents annually. We focus on caring for those affected by HIV, Hep C and other sexually transmitted diseases and helping to improve their lives and focus on stopping the spread of sexually transmitted diseases through prevention, public awareness, education and advocacy.
Case Managers provide key assistance in four areas for the clients; access to an HIV specialist, HIV medicines, food and housing subsidy assistance. They work both independently and as a team with the other Case Managers to offer individualized care for each client, relying on their network of care providers and one another for additional expertise to help clients achieve improved medical outcomes. They meet regularly with clients one-on-one to conduct comprehensive assessments of individual need, and to provide assistance and advocacy regarding medical, social, community, financial and other needed services. Their careful oversight ensures that clients can more easily access medical care, substance abuse services, oral health care, mental health services, case management services and support services including transportation, housing, and public benefits.
Our Case Managers work closely with the client’s physician and with clinics to help maintain the records of each client. They will monitor each of the clients and make sure they maintain adherence to their medical needs by face to face meetings, phone calls and semi-annual evaluations.
All MAF Case Managers provide comprehensive, integrative services that are specifically targeted to address the changing, challenging and complex needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Maui County, a rural region with relatively few opportunities to access specialized, urban health care.
