Since 1983, Colorado Health Network (CHN) has sought to innovatively and equitably meet the evolving needs of individuals in Colorado living with and at risk of acquiring HIV and other health conditions. Colorado Health Network is a statewide organization and currently serves over 5,250 individuals living with HIV by providing a broad spectrum of holistic support services including medical and oral health care, case management, behavioral health services, housing assistance, nutrition services, and emergency financial assistance. Each service CHN provides is strategically designed to help empower people eliminate barriers to treatment and care and to make healthy choices leading to increased stability and healthier lives.
CHN also works to prevent the spread of HIV through testing, promoting treatment as prevention and providing PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) services. CHN utilizes a spectrum of education and prevention services with a focus on meeting clients where they are in an effort to help decrease their risk over time. CHN serves a diverse population reaching them through media, community outreach and referrals. Additionally, CHN provides other health-related services including a sterile needle access/exchange program and insurance and medical enrollment services.
