•AIDS Resource Center of WI (ARCW)
The AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW), serving all of Wisconsin, is one of the largest and most comprehensive AIDS service organizations in the country. Through its integrated medical, dental and mental health clinics; pharmacy and medication assistance program; and dedicated services such as food pantries, hous-ing, legal counseling and social work case management, patients throughout Wis-consin gain the health care and support they need for long-term survival with HIV disease.
ARCW is also a leading provider of aggressive prevention, testing and counseling services designed to reach people most at-risk for contracting HIV. ARCW also pro-vides hepatitis C testing and counseling, as well as sexually transmitted infection prevention and testing services.
In February 2015, ARCW and AIDS Network merged, with the goal of building on the success both organizations had in helping Wisconsin establish itself as a national leader in confronting the AIDS epidemic.
