Using a public health model,
ACP works in communities where HIV disease is prevalent to insure equal
access to treatment, to provide appropriate care, and to educate the
public and healthcare providers about the effects that traditional East
Asian medicine has on HIV/AIDS. Through federal and local public health
funding, we are able to offer services at low or no cost to clients.
Our healing, education, and research activities are all client-centered
with the goal of empowering individuals to have an expanded role in
knowledge is respected as are my needs. I always ask questions, and
the response is always patient and informative." -
ACP has become a national
model in the field of public health and continues to grow. We have
several locations throughout Massachusetts as well as a home-visit
program in Western Mass. With a staff of over 25, we are now the largest public health
clinic for complementary therapies and HIV in the nation. In 1998 the
AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts awarded ACP the Community Recognition
Award for work in the HIV/AIDS community; this is the only award voted
on by HIV/AIDS clients themselves.

dealing with my HIV infection and more importantly with the side effects
of medications I am taking...Coming to the clinic is like coming home
to family." - ACP client
