The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) has given an almost $1.1 million grant to Boston Medical Center (BMC) for HIV/AIDS support and case management, according to a BMC statement. These funds will allow for an expansion of BMC's HIV clinic, which is already among the largest in the state. The clinic offers a full range of services and mostly caters to a low-income inner-city clientele, as well as the largest proportion of HIV-positive women in the state. The grant money will also allow the clinic to add peer navigation services—a networking process to bring together patients with similar experiences for support.
