Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship of availability of HIV-related information and emotional support necessary to obtaining appropriate medical care. Multivariate models control for use of professional case management, mental health services, and drug treatment services. Study data were obtained from the first two rounds of interviews from the New York City Community Health Advisory and Information Network (CHAIN). Household information support and professional ancillary services were significantly associated with entry into appropriate medical care. Among participants in appropriate care at the baseline, only professional services were significantly associated with continuity of care.
