ANAL HEALTH CLINIC
Anal cancer screening is very important for people living with HIV because they have a much higher risk of developing anal cancer than people without HIV. Anal cancer is caused by a very common virus, called the HPV virus. This virus is so common that most people get it sometime in their life. You don’t have to have anal sex to be at risk for anal cancer. Screening for anal cancer starts with a simple, painless test called an anal Pap. If needed, a special follow-up exam called a high-resolution anoscopy (HRA) will be done and precancerous changes can be easily treated in the clinic. Rocky Mountain CARES offers anal Pap testing, HRA, and treatment of precancerous changes. Talk to your health-care provider today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
MEDICAL CARE MANAGEMENT
For people living with HIV, access to quality health care is important. However, the health care system, insurance and other benefit programs are complex and hard to navigate. On top of this, housing, basic needs, substance use and mental health can take priority over your health. Having a systems expert on your team is a key part of having the best outcomes.
When you enroll in the Rocky Mountain CARES case management system a social work case manager will become your partner in planning the best way for all of your needs to be met Your case manager will work together with you, your health care providers and others involved in your care so that you have a complete approach to meeting your needs.
