Help‑4‑Hep is a non-profit, peer-to-peer helpline where counselors work with patients to meet the challenges of hepatitis C head-on. Callers talk one-to-one with a real person, typically someone who’s had hepatitis C touch their own life. And they talk about the specifics of their particular situation. The phone call, support and information are all provided free of charge.
The Philadelphia Linkage Program (PLP) serves people living with HIV while they are incarcerated and continues through their release from the Philadelphia Department of Prisons. Their Medical Case Managers connect clients to healthcare, community resources, social support programs, and HIV education as they transition from jail back into the community.
