Due to high volume and to avoid delays, we cannot accommodate walk ins for medication after 4:00 pm. Social workers will be available for approval but medication will not be filled by the pharmacy until the next day.


The 1917 Clinic... a Ryan White grantee since 1999.

The 1917 Clinic receives Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act funding to provide access to comprehensive health care for low-income, uninsured and under-insured HIV infected adults regardless of any pre-existing or non-HIV related condition(s). Patients who are HIV infected are not denied service based on inability to pay  copays, sliding scale fees or other payments.  Patients who have bills that are in collections are not denied services. Serving more than 1,969 patients in 2012, this academically based clinic is the largest HIV health care unit in Alabama. On February 1, 2013, we expanded our clinical operations to accommodate an additional 850 patients formerly enrolled in care at the St. George’s Clinic at Cooper Green Mercy Hospital.

For 25 years the UAB 1917 Clinic has provided comprehensive core medical and social services to adult HIV infected patients. Medical specialty, dental and mental health services are available onsite through referral. In 2012 the Liver Clinic at 1917 was established to provide access to Hepatitis treatment and clinical trials. Appointments are available through referral.

In 2012-2013 the 1917 Clinic received awards for $1,944,055 in Ryan White Part B & C funding. The Alabama HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Unit, nested within the UAB 1917 Clinic is responsible for HIV/AIDS vaccine, prevention and treatment research. The Clinical Trials Unit is funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIAID.
