Older adults living with HIV face the challenges of growing older on top of the challenges they already face living with HIV. Stigma in particular is a concern for this group, especially among older men living with HIV who may already feel isolated. Stigma is more likely to interfere with their physical health, self-image, and quality of life.
We designed HIVE (HIV Elders) to improve the health and well-being of this growing population of men and empower them by addressing stigma, social isolation, and social support.
The men in HIVE are able to participate in discussion groups, get support in life skills, join our health education, and attend special events.
Thanks to AIDS Walk Los Angeles, we’re able to continue to expand programs like HIVE so more people can receive the emotional and mental health support they need.

Our team works to assist HIV-positive clients with telephone case management, medical transportation, and overcoming barriers to receiving HIV care.

APLA Health is working to expand our medical care coordination team and increase our ability to assist clients with staying in care. It’s hard work, but we can do it.

We know that staying in care not only improves the health of the individual, but it also improves the health of our communities. When a person living with HIV stays in care and reaches an undetectable viral load, they are unable to transmit the virus to another person. That is why our care coordination and benefit’s team are so important to ending the epidemic.

In order to educate more people about U=U, the information must be community driven.

We work with our partners in the community, elected officials and the media to spread the word about U=U. Our goal is to move the needle on the number of people living with HIV who are viral suppressed from 61% to 90%.

But that can only be done with advocacy and education.

AIDS Walk Los Angeles is APLA Health’s largest public event, whether in-person or online. We appreciate your hard work in helping us spread life changing messages, like U=U. Together we can help reduce stigma and stop the spread of HIV.
