Walmart has renewed its commitment to help eradicate HIV/AIDS through education, access to testing and partnerships to raise awareness of available resources.
In an announcement on World Aids Day, Nov. 30, Walmart said it has launched a community-centered specialty pharmacy strategy, building centers of clinical excellence in specific diseases. The first three centers, referred to individually as “specialty pharmacy of the community,” provide customers with highly specialized pharmacy teams trained in HIV/AIDS medications, clinical services to recognize potential medication-related side effects and assistance to understand the unique needs of people living with HIV/AIDS.
The centers are located within the existing pharmacy of Walmart stores where the staff has been trained on specifics around HIV therapies, care and medications. Two of the centers are located in Georgia, with one in Florida.Chain Store Age
