Dear ARCW Patient or Client:
The AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW) and AIDS Network are excited to announce the merger of the two organizations to strengthen Wisconsin’s response to AIDS. The two organizations will merge effective February 1, 2015 and operate as the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin.
I want to assure you that your services will continue uninterrupted through our merger. Specifically:
Continuing to provide you the services you rely on along with the opportunity to expand access to HIV services are important reasons that ARCW and AIDS Network have decided to join forces. With the merger, the Boards of Directors and management of the organizations prioritized increasing access to care, further improving clinical outcomes, strengthening community engagement, championing best practices and enhancing resources for HIV services.
This is an exciting time for our organizations as we continue to strive to better meet your needs. ARCW staff and our Board of Directors are pleased about the potential of this new opportunity to both expand and continue our services.
For more information about the ARCW and AIDS Network merger please review the FAQ or contact your local office and ARCW staff member.
Michael J. Gifford
President & Chief Executive Officer
AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin
