  • CAN Now Providing Services At Four South Florida Locations

    CAN Community Health began in a small building in 1992, known at the time as the Community AIDS Network. When CAN started there were few medicines for AIDS and people were dying by the thousands. Now in an era where drugs are safer and more effective, countless lives are being saved and people with HIV are living long healthy lives. However, the fight against HIV is not over. 1 in 7 people in the U.S. living with HIV are unaware of their status.

    CAN is proud to operate 34 clinics throughout Florida and the southern U.S. and currently serves over 15,000 patients annually. CAN is dedicated to the treatment, care and continual wellness of people living with HIV, hepatitis C, STDs and other diseases by partnering with other agencies, which already know the community and local patients. Through partnerships, CAN brings in medical services and partners provide additional services, so everything a patient would need can be provided in one location. Some of CAN’s partners include Broward House, Joseph H. Neal Health Collaborative, Lutheran Social Services, Metro, Pridelines, and many more in the works.

    CAN services include medical and dental care, counseling and therapy, case management, education, peer support, pharmacy services, and community awareness including free rapid HIV and HEP C testing.

    Visit CAN clinics in North Miami and South Beach, or partner clinics at Broward House in Ft. Lauderdale, and at Pridelines in Miami. For more information, visit cancommunityhealth.org/locations.
