Our work


AFC is uniquely positioned to partner with health plans and health/hospital systems due to our experience in advancing care for HIV-positive individuals as well as people who are currently not receiving care, struggling with homelessness, managing other chronic conditions or are enrolled in health insurance plans such as Medicaid and the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative.

We are confident health care organizations will find CommunityLinks to be a great partner in advancing health outcomes — not only for their HIV-positive members, but also for members who are not currently receiving care, struggling with homelessness or managing other chronic conditions. 

Why AFC?

AFC has significant breadth of experience to offer as a partner and a deep understanding of high-need populations in the Chicago community, bringing three decades of expertise and service to the affected individuals and communities, including:

  • Extensive knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS, other chronic health conditions and managed care populations.
  • Unmatched cultural competency working with people of color, Spanish speakers, gay men, transgender communities, and other populations that have historically been excluded from the mainstream medical system.
  • A significant history of integrating services, breaking down organizational silos and bringing sectors together, including health, housing, transportation, social services and food services.
  • A demonstrated commitment to high-quality, culturally competent care coordination and care delivery, as well as the operational capacity to excel in both the public and private sectors.
