AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is offering people living with HIV in South Florida a new opportunity for access to client-centered, specialized HIV/AIDS treatment and care through the AHF Lake Ida Healthcare Center. The clinic is operated under Pierre Dorsainvil, MD. Dr. Dorsainvil and his staff are fluent in English and Creole.

AHF Healthcare Centers offer HIV/AIDS treatment and care - regardless of ability to pay - coupled with counseling and education on living well with HIV, as well as ongoing follow-ups to ensure an uninterrupted health regimen that will keep clients' viral loads low to undetectable, thus extending life expectancies and reducing the risk of transmission.

There were 332 new HIV cases and 205 new AIDS cases reported in 2012 in Palm Beach County. The AHF Lake Ida Healthcare Center will offer services for those who are HIV+ regardless of their ability to pay.

"We at AHF are proud to partner with Dr. Dorsainvil to offer a resource for those who know they are positive so they may access lifesaving treatment and care in a client-centered and comfortable environment," said Michael Kahane, AHF Southern Bureau Chief who oversees operations in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the Caribbean.
