JRI Health

JRI Health’s primary mission is to partner with individuals and communities to achieve the health and justice we all deserve. JRI Health offers a continuum of services to mitigate the social and health determinants, and address the well-being of underserved individuals and communities living with and at risk for HIV and HCV. Services incorporate state-of-the-art best practices and standards of care to ensure culturally competent psychosocial supports, effective case management, and housing, legal, and treatment resources, particularly for immigrants, MSM, communities of color, and individuals struggling with treatment adherence. JRI Health has also worked to positively impact the service-delivery system, providing skills training to medical and social service providers on community health issues.
