CARE

In 1983, AIDS Project Los Angeles (now APLA Health) was founded to help stop AIDS and HIV in Los Angeles County. Our early mission was to educate our community with factual, up-to-date information about AIDS. We launched one of the nation’s first AIDS hotlines, initially housed in an old closet with all that we knew about AIDS — a single page of facts and resources on a clipboard.
 
We’ve come a long way since that closet and will be moving into a new 10,000 square foot facility next year!
 
Set on the campus of Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science and across from the Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital, our new federally qualified health will be a location where people can access primary medical, dental and behavioral health care, HIV prevention and support services, STD screenings and treatment. It will also be a training ground for CDU students to get hands on experience in healthcare and advance their knowledge of LGBTQ+ affirming care.
