Welcome to the HIV L.A. Directory

The Los Angeles Office of AIDS Programs and Policy (OAPP) is pleased to offer the 2009 HIV L.A. Directory: A Comprehensive Directory to HIV/AIDS Services in Los Angeles County and is proud to be a partner with AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) in serving people living with HIV/AIDS and persons at risk for HIV infection in Los Angeles County.

The HIV L.A. Directory remains a valuable tool for people living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS infection. This edition continues to incorporate English and Spanish language in the same publication and includes a special section for HIV/AIDS providers. Combining these three components creates a directory that is more accessible, cost efficient, and user friendly.

Los Angeles County is home to approximately 60,000 people living with HIV/AIDS, and has hundreds of service providers dedicated to helping those in need of services. HIV L.A. includes more than 1,500 distinct listings of services across 33 different service categories, including Medical Resources, Support Groups, Drug Treatment, Women’s Services, Prevention Education, HIV/AIDS Testing and Youth Assistance, among dozens more.

The HIV L.A. print directory is published twice a year and the corresponding Website,, is updated regularly. The Website allows users to search for information in a variety of ways, including by zip code, by region, by keyword, and by service category. In addition to the printed directory and the website, a toll-free hotline, (866) 772-2365, for clients and service providers, is available to answer questions about services, benefits, and the directory.

In the spirit of partnership and responsiveness, I hope that consumers of this directory will provide suggestions to APLA for making this resource as complete and useful as possible. For your convenience, a survey is available online. Please take this opportunity to provide feedback by returning the survey.

As part of OAPP’s mission to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and effectively target services for persons affected by the disease, I thank the consumers of this directory for partnering with us to access and facilitate delivery of essential prevention and care services in order to improve the overall well-being of Los Angeles County residents. Lastly, I would like to recognize APLA for their leadership and contributions in the local response against HIV/AIDS, and more specifically, recognize their exceptional work in producing this directory.

Very truly yours,
