(AICS), is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the well-being of the community, through advocacy and service to eliminate disparities and promote equity in health care in the greater Washington DC region. Communities of different ethnic origins do have barriers to access to health care and health education due to being either linguistically challenged, economic status, education level, mental health or by the geographical region of their residence. These are typically our target and the hard to reach population.
