The Organization:

ActionAIDS is a Philadelphia, PA based organization, committed to creating an AIDS-free generation through a combination of proven strategies. ActionAIDS Services include case management, HIV testing, prevention education, and supportive housing.

How Wanda Does It:

By setting priorities, goals, and objectives related to a client's health and stability Wanda is able to track and manage her efforts in keeping her client’s healthy. As a result of her commitment to her clients, 96% of Wanda's clients have a suppressed HIV viral load. A suppressed HIV viral load is the "gold standard" for health outcomes in a population diagnosed with HIV. This outcome is 11% higher than any of Wanda's peers and exceeds national standards. These are impressive results for any behavioral health specialist working with an HIV positive population. But what's really exceptional is that Wanda achieves these outcomes with a caseload comprised of higher-need individuals who are not only HIV positive but also have severe, long-term mental health and substance abuse issues.

Wanda is a humble individual who simply believes that she is "just doing her job." But we believe that the outstanding level of quality service that Wanda provides to her clients makes her a true Superstar.
