The Davis Clinic serves as the HIV/AIDS ambulatory facility for North Alabama. In 1992, a local group, the AIDS Action Coalition opened the Joe Davis Clinic to help provide medical services to persons infected with HIV in the 12 counties of North Alabama that make up Public Health Area I & II. Over 650 HIV positive/AIDS patients are actively followed here. All medical services are provided regardless of the client's ability to pay. Approximately 65% of patients have no insurance. This clinic is located approximately two blocks west of Huntsville Hospital. The Davis Clinic provides an elective sub specialty experience in infectious disease / HIV medicine.
