World Health Clinicians (WHC) was founded in January 2011 with the mission of preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections, and to reduce the associated morbidity and mortality in the developed and developing worlds through treatment, patient advocacy and assistance, and education.
WHC’s first initiative was to establish a center of excellence in the treatment and prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI), as well as providing high-quality primary care for sexual and gender minorities (LGBTQ). WHC’s vision was realized in 2012 with the founding of Circle Care Center, located in Norwalk, CT. Circle Care Center provides a vast array of services under one roof including comprehensive medical care, HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, STI testing and treatment, an onsite non-profit pharmacy, and mental health treatment. WHC also works closely with its community partners Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project and Triangle Community Center to fund additional services that are available to community members who are looking for peer support groups, social events, case management services, food, assistance with updating ID documents, and financial assistance. All three organizations are co-located at World Health Clinicians facility at 618 West Avenue in Norwalk, CT.
