04 Dec AltaMed Health Services Commemorates World AIDS Day

To commemorate World AIDS Day, AltaMed Health Services, one of Southern California’s largest HIV/AIDS health care providers, offered free HIV testing through its mobile unit on Friday, December 1.

Through AltaMed’s Universal Testing Initiative, patients ages 18 and older are offered free annual HIV testing during routine medical visits. The program identifies an average of eight HIV-positive patients each month, resulting in more people connected to care and achieving viral suppression. AltaMed also provides Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to help prevent new infections in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
