To make receiving comprehensive care convenient, IHV at the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus provides services that address our patients' medical, social, emotional and financial needs all in one place. We work as a team to overcome obstacles to care and encourage each patient to become an active member of that team. The office is staffed by HIV specialists, social workers and nurses who provide high-quality, confidential HIV specialty care and primary care services.

Primary Medical Care Services
As part of the comprehensive treatment plan, primary medical care services are provided for IHV patients.
Within IHV, a team of doctors and nurse practitioners focuses on the health issues that face women living with HIV/AIDS. The team provides a range of health and support services, including routine gynecological exams and colposcopies—a procedure to examine the cervix, vagina and vulva.
Substance Abuse Services
We provide support for patients dealing with addictions, including on-site evaluations/assessments, counseling and referrals to in- and outpatient programs in the community. We also have a buprenorphine (Suboxone) maintenance program for patients who are struggling with heroin or other opiate addiction.
Our social workers provide additional support by coordinating patient support and helping patients get access to prescription coverage, medications and transportation to appointments. The social worker also works closely with the patient's medical providers.
A dedicated housing case manager develops a tailored housing plan that makes the best use of both the patient's strengths as well as the available resources in Baltimore.
A registered dietitian is available to meet with patients each week to help with meal planning, issues related to weight loss/gain and other nutritional needs.
Mental Health Services
A partnership with the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus Outpatient Behavioral Health program allows patients to see a psychiatrist and/or therapist to help with issues such as depression, grief, loss and other issues.
Staffed by our social work staff, groups include "Mindfulness, Meditation and Knitting" and "Smoking Cessation."
Patient/Consumer Advisory Board
Our patient/consumer advisory board meets quarterly and acts as a voice for all patients. New members are always encouraged to participate.
