As one of the largest providers of HIV/AIDS care in Los Angeles and Orange counties, AltaMed has been working to reduce HIV/AIDS health disparities among underinsured, hard-to-reach communities of color for more than 30 years.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV infection and 1 in 7 is unaware of their infection. Despite advances in HIV testing and treatment, communities of color continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV in Southern California.
