Link-Up Michigan is a new public health strategy that aims to connect HIV-positive individuals to both medical and non-medical services. Link-Up Michigan services are open to Michigan residents who are currently not receiving HIV/AIDS care. It provides each individual with short-term, intensive support through referrals to existing community support programs. Link-Up Michigan also assits in connecting individuals who are out of care with an HIV medical provider.
