About the Partnership Project

About the Partnership Project

Partnership Project, developed in 1995, is a consortium of 13 public and private medical and social services agencies in the Portland metropolitan area. The participating agencies contribute staff, financial support and expertise to form the Partnership Project. This collaborative effort extends each agency's human, fiscal, and programmatic resources, and maximizes community resources by eliminating duplication, increasing inter-agency awareness and providing multiple service access points.

Medical case management

Partnership Project provides comprehensive client-centered case management services to clients and to the family members who constitute their major support system. Nurse and medical case managers assure that eligible HIV positive individuals have access to health insurance and to a complex array of other allied health and support services that assist them to maintain focus on their on-going health and medical care regimen. Our nurse and medical case managers work on-site at five major HIV medical care clinics in our geographic area, and have strong working and referral relationships with all others. Learn more about our case management services.

Navigation for immigrants and refugees living with HIV (Minority AIDS Initiative Funding)

In collaboration with Lutheran Family Services, MAI works with medical case management to provide intensive and culturally appropriate services to refugees and immigrants living with HIV. Learn more about our services for immigrants and refugees.

Transgender Health Program

The vision of the Transgender Health Program was created by a group of OHSU clinicians, administrators and local community members, based on recognition of the unique healthcare needs of transgender communities. This dedicated group of advocates secured funding in 2014 to hire a program coordinator to begin offering information, referral and navigation services to the transgender patient and provider community. Leadership of the Partnership Project was a key stakeholder of this group and thus the program resides within Partnership Project. 

The program launched in January 2015 with the hire of the program coordinator. In its first year, the program responded to just over 500 referrals, provided workforce education on transgender awareness to 2000 people and was at the center of policy advocacy to promote a more inclusive transgender health benefit for the Oregon Health Plan.
