The AIDS Coordination and Information Services Program provides a central contact point for persons with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) disease and their families to obtain information on a variety of health care and social services needs.
The AIDS Coordination and Information Services (ACIS) program staff coordinate HIV/AIDS related activities within the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) and provides assistance to various OKDHS divisions.
ACIS oversees the statewide operation of the HIV/AIDS Case Management Program for OKDHS.
Case management is provided through professional care coordinators located in Tulsa and Oklahoma City who are trained to assist HIV infected in accessing needed services.
Care coordinators provide information and referral, client assessment, advocacy and intervention, access to contract services and follow-up services to assure the client is receiving needed services.
These staff are also involved in the development and coordination of community resources to fill gaps and eliminate duplication of services.
There are no income or resource restrictions for case management services. HIV infection is the only eligibility criterion and referrals are accepted from any location in the state.
