Roswell Welcomes New Truman Health Services Clinic operated by UNM

The City of Roswell has recently welcomed UNM’s Truman Health Services Clinic, which provides HIV and sexual health care to people in southeastern New Mexico. The facility offers primary care, testing, and prevention services for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, addressing a longstanding need in the area. According to recent public data, HIV rates in Chaves County alone have increased by 52% over the past 16 years.

Dr. Michelle Iandioro, medical director for UNM Truman Health Services, emphasizes the disparities in STI and HIV rates across the state, particularly in areas with limited access to healthcare and prevention resources. The new clinic aims to address these issues by helping people know their status, access prevention services, and receive treatment closer to home.

Before the opening of the Truman Health Services Clinic, Roswell only had a mobile unit that visited once a month to provide HIV treatment. The goal of the new facility is to make it easier for people to seek help without having to travel long distances. Dr. Gary Mlady, interim CEO & president of the UNM medical group, stresses the importance of expanding healthcare access to all New Mexicans, regardless of their location.

UNM is taking steps towards making healthcare more accessible throughout the state with this new clinic in Roswell and its center for telehealth. This initiative is vital in addressing rising rates of STIs and HIV in southeastern New Mexico and providing essential care to those who need it most.
