Uganda
Our Goal

Use effective interventions to drive human behavior change and improve health literacy to optimize disease prevention and treatment outcome for people living with HIV.

Our Approach

In 2015, Connect for Life™ implemented its first flagship program in Uganda in partnership with the Ugandan Ministry of Health and the Infectious Diseases Institute, focusing on HIV, TB, and maternal and child health. The program was launched in two clinics and is now available to all patients in the Infectious Diseases Institute as part of clinical practice.

Philippines
Our Goal

Significantly reduce the burden of HIV in The Philippines by understanding the factors that affect patient adherence to medications, as well as assessing efficacy and availability of current care.

Our Approach

The diverse geography of the Philippines often limits access to healthcare services. Better interconnectivity between health providers could reduce variations in quality of care across the islands.
Connect for Life™ offers treating phisicians a clinical information system to further engage with their patients and offers patients the means to stay connected across remote locations.

Connect for Life

Helping individuals overcome their addiction is this program’s main goal.

Addiction is a major public health concern in Illinois and the nation. As an agency committed to the preservation of life and public safety, the Naperville Police Department seeks to reduce the impact of addiction in Naperville by facilitating an immediate connection to treatment for those seeking help for their addiction. This initiative is called Connect for Life.

What addictions can the Naperville Police Department help with?

  • Opioids (Heroin, Oxycodone, etc.)
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Marijuana
  • Alcohol
  • Stimulants
  • Hallucinogens
  • Others

Where do I go?
Anyone who enters our department at 1350 Aurora Avenue, Naperville, and requests help with their addiction will be immediately screened into the Connect for Life initiative.

How quickly will I be connected to services?
It is recognized that there is a narrow window, generally 12 – 24 hours depending on the addiction, to help a person when they decide they want help. The purpose of the Connect for Life initiative is to get those seeking assistance into treatment right away.

What if I still have drugs with me when I come to the Naperville Police Department?
Inform the officer you have items to relinquish. We will take them for destruction, and you will not be criminally charged for possession of these items.
