HIV Care Program

For Consumers

Who we are

 The HIV Care Program (HCP) is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (Part B). HCP is part of a comprehensive system of care that includes primary medical care and essential support services for people living with HIV who are low income and uninsured or underinsured. HCP seeks to improve the quality, availability, and organization of HIV health care and support services in California.

What we provide

Services are provided locally by funded health departments and community-based organizations throughout California. HCP providers served about 14,500 clients throughout the state during 2016.

The availability of services may differ from county to county. Services may include such things as outpatient medical care, case management, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, health education, housing services, transportation services, dental care, and food bank.

Who is eligible

To be eligible for HCP services, individuals must be (1) HIV positive, (2) low income, and (3) reside in California.
