Community Programs


The Department of Health funds 14 Ryan White Part B HIV care consortia within Florida. The consortia advise the HIV/AIDS Section on planning and prioritizing the service needs of people living with HIV.

Each consortium plans, develops, and delivers comprehensive outpatient health and support services to meet the identified needs of people living with HIV within its specified geographic area. Consortia membership is open to all interested individuals, and we especially encourage participation by persons with HIV.

Learn more by contacting your area's consortium lead agency or by calling the Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline at 1-800-FLA-AIDS (English), 1-888-503-7118 (TDY), 1-800-545-SIDA (Spanish), or 1-800-AIDS-101 (Creole).
