Berks County

BerksCountyOur Berks County program unit was founded in 1985 as Berks AIDS Health Crisis and later known as Berks AIDS Network (BAN, 1992-2003), Co-County Wellness Services continues to meet the needs of persons living with HIV in our community through Case Management and Medication Adherence services. Additionally, we provide prevention services related to HIV/STDs and teen pregnancy as well as HIV testing and STD screening/treatment.

Berks County ranks in the top 10, among Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, for cumulative HIV cases and rate of new HIV infections. Our STD rates rival the state rate and we have a teen birth rate that exceeds both state and national averages. Our STD clinic records over 1,800 patient visits per year.

All of our services are free and confidential without discrimination in regard to age, ancestry, citizenship, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, medical condition, disability, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
