Funding & Subsidies for Treatment
Since the earliest days of the epidemic, the Los Angeles LGBT Center has been providing leading-edge and affordable HIV/AIDS medical care. The Los Angeles LGBT Center fights to reverse budget cuts to HIV/AIDS care for underserved individuals and increase the eligibility limit for drug assist programs, allowing more people living with HIV to access medications.
The dedicated policy staff at the Foundation and the Center work at all levels of government to ensure that federal programs and funding levels sufficiently address the needs of those living with HIV, and that HIV/AIDS issues remain a top priority for lawmakers. Last year, San Francisco AIDS Foundation’s policy work ensured that 29,200 Californians maintained access to the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP).
The Center’s renowned Clinical Research Program conducts research studies and clinical trials that contribute to scientific knowledge regarding the prevention, intervention, and treatment of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. The research staff are vital community partners with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, National Institutes of Health, UCLA, USC, UCSF and other institutions. Aligned with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, the Center’s research focuses on intervening at every stage of HIV infection.
