We’ve evolved and needed a name that better communicated who we are now, what we do, and the benefits we provide. Community Research Initiative no longer told our story.
We remain dedicated, as always, to connecting people who are confronting HIV, TB, and other infectious diseases with essential medication, insurance, and support. Our new name, AccessHealth MA, lets people know exactly what we’re here for and for whom: to provide access to what helps people stay healthy, for all residents of the Commonwealth who are in need.
