AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

This program helps ensure that people living with HIV and AIDS have access to medication.  Individuals are eligible for ADAP if they are a resident of California, are HIV infected, are 18 years of age or older, have a Federal Adjusted Gross Income (FAGI) that does not exceed $50,000, have a valid prescription from a licensed California physician, and lack private insurance that covers the medications, or do not qualify for County medical insurance (Medi-Cal or CMSP).

Education and Prevention

We offer free educational presentations, information and condoms, and sponsor events at schools, churches, and civic and community organizations.

HIV/STD Testing

Confidential testing for HIV, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea are offered at the Mammoth Lakes and Bridgeport offices by appointment only.

HIV Care Program (HCP)

This program provides confidential services for HIV-positive people, their partners, and their family members who live in Mono County. Services include case management to help identify needs and provide referrals to community resources, and financial assistance to help obtain public benefits and medical services such as gas and food vouchers, payment of utility bills, or assistance with obtaining medications.

Surveillance

Federal and state laws require HIV/AIDS case reporting to be conducted by laboratories, local health departments, counseling and testing (C&T) sites and healthcare providers. The Health Department ensures that all local cases of HIV/AIDS are reported to the California Department of Public Health.
