An Oak Cliff-based healthcare nonprofit has a new name.

AIDS Arms Inc. is now Prism Health North Texas.

The organization opened in 1986 to provide healthcare and other services amid the AIDS epidemic crisis. The new name reflects the broader spectrum of services it now provides.

“HIV treatment has improved over the last 30 years to such a degree that today the focus is less on AIDS and more on the prevention and treatment of HIV” says Prism Health North Texas CEO Dr. John T. Carlo.

Prism changed the names of its two health clinics to Trinity – Oak Cliff clinic and Peabody – South Dallas clinic.

The organization’s mission won’t change with the name. Prism remains committed to the following:

  • Comprehensive care from experienced, specialized professionals
  • The most advanced treatment in HIV/AIDS
  • Complete confidentiality
  • Convenience, including short wait times and onsite pharmacy services
  • Accessibility through two clinics
  • Affordability
