Community Programs

HIV/AIDS

The Department of Health funds 14 Ryan White Part B HIV Care Consortia within Florida. Each consortium acts in an advisory capacity to the HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis Program for the purpose of planning and prioritizing the service needs of individuals infected with HIV.

The purpose of a consortium is to plan, develop and deliver comprehensive outpatient health and support services to meet the identified need of individuals with HIV disease within the specified geographic areas. Membership on an HIV Care Consortia is open to all interested individuals and participation by persons with HIV is particularly encouraged.
Information about accessing these services can be obtained by contacting the Case Management Agency in your area or the Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline at 1-800-FLA-AIDS (1-800-352-2437) 1-888-503-7118 (TDY) 1-800-545-SIDA (Spanish) 1-800-AIDS-101 (Creole)
