Case Management Program

Karumah provides a comprehensive case management service for PLHIV in the HNE Region which travels out into the community. Our case manager conducts comprehensive assessments listens to stories identifies barriers and issues and works collaboratively with people to address them. The case manager will advocate, liaise, makes referrals and follows up to assist with better self-manage skills. Our approach is long term person centred and evidence based and our goal is to improve the health and well-being of PLHIV, improve treatment uptake, reduce hospital presentations and reduce the strain on other primary services.

If you would like support around issues of living with HIV contact our case manager Catherine for an appointment today.
