AIDS Walk Los Angeles is the world’s first walk to fight HIV and AIDS and benefits APLA Health (formerly AIDS Project Los Angeles), which provides 20 different services including medical, dental, behavioral health and HIV specialty care; PrEP counseling and management (APLA Health PrEP stands for preexposure prophylaxis, the administration of antiviral drugs intended to prevent HIV/AIDS.); health education and HIV prevention; and screening and treatment for diseases spread through sex. 38 years ago, a group of fed-up activists, patients, advocates, and friends put their soles on the line to shake the government into action during the AIDS crisis. Since that first Walk in 1985, hundreds of thousands of walkers and their supporters have raised more than $92 million to combat HIV and AIDS. These funds are a vital lifeline that sustains APLA Health’s programs and services benefiting more than 18,000 individuals living in Los Angeles County, which continues to have the second largest number of people living with HIV in the country.
