About Us

Established in 1984, Equitas Health is a regional nonprofit community healthcare system. A federally-designated Community Health Center, it is one of the largest LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS serving healthcare organizations in the United States. With 21 offices in 13 cities, Equitas Health serves tens of thousands of patients in Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia each year through patient-centered, integrated, and cutting edge services, including primary and specialized medical care, pharmacy, dentistry, mental health and recovery, HIV/STI treatment and prevention, PrEP/PEP, Ryan White/HIV case management, care navigation, advocacy, and other community health initiatives. The Equitas Health Pharmacy is an integral and essential part of the health center’s comprehensive care and business models, reinvesting 100% of profits back into the organization’s programs and services. Equitas Health operates pharmacies serving patients in Ohio and Texas.

The Equitas Health Institute and the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization (BRAVO) are divisions of Equitas Health.


Our Vision: Individuals living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, the LGBTQ community and others who experience medical disparities have access to the highest quality healthcare and preventative services.

Our mission is to be the gateway to good health for those at risk of or affected by HIV, for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) community, and for those seeking a welcoming healthcare home.

Our Values


We have the cultural awareness to provide competent care to the LGBTQ community and those seeking a welcoming healthcare home.


Through our network of facilities and expertise, we can address the full needs of patients, offering services in the fields of medical, social, and behavioral care.


The breadth and depth of our services is now greater and we are able to serve anyone in the community-in addition to those at-risk or living with HIV/AIDS.


We offer an accepting and safe healthcare environment for all.


We allow our providers to spend more time with patients. This gives them the opportunity to listen to the patient’s concerns, build a relationship, and build competency in treating the patient with a person-centered approach.


We stay at the forefront of evolving medical approaches, technology, and treatment to meet the challenging needs of our community.


We are proud to be engaged in the noble purposes of defeating the HIV/AIDS epidemic and addressing LGBTQ healthcare disparities. We will continue to be pioneers and leaders in the pursuit of health, wellness, equality, and equity.
