Our Schuylkill County program unit was founded in 1997 as Schuylkill Wellness Services (SWS). In addition to Case Management and Medication Adherence services for persons living with HIV, Schuylkill Wellness Services provides prevention services related to HIV/STDs and teen pregnancy as well as HIV testing and STD screening/treatment.
Many Schuylkill County residents are not aware of the impact HIV and other STDs have on the health of the community. Schuylkill County ranks in the top third of Pennsylvania counties for cumulative HIV cases and the top 50 percentile for rate of new infections. There are hundreds of visits made to our STD clinic each year. The rate of teen births in the county exceeds the state.
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.
SWS is the only comprehensive HIV/STD service organization in Schuylkill County.
