CDC Meets APLA Health
The current administration has vowed to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2030, and APLA Health shares this mission of making AIDS history. As part of the CDC’s commitment, director Dr. Robert Redfield visited APLA Health on July 18 to discuss efforts to end the spread of HIV in Los Angeles County with community stakeholders. Health centers like APLA Health play a vital role, with tools and knowledge to provide culturally competent care and treatment as well as benefits navigation.
