APLA Health is committed to achieving health care equity and promoting well-being for the LGBT and other underserved communities and people living with and affected by HIV.
For 35 years, we have fought to end the epidemic. We did this for our lives and for our future. Over the years, we have continually evolved and expanded our services to meet the growing and changing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS; adding behavioral healthcare, developing robust HIV & STD testing and prevention programs, increasing our advocacy work, broadening our support services and adding primary medical care.
Today, APLA Health serves more than 15,000 patients and clients annually, focusing on serving the low-income LGBT community and people living with HIV.
We continue to be the leading provider of HIV prevention and health education services in Los Angeles County targeting populations at highest risk of HIV, including gay men of color, young gay men and members of the transgender community.
