Office of AIDS website overhaul

Dear all,

Yesterday, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Website launched a new layout and look. The changes are designed to maximize user friendliness, enhance search capability, and to ensure compliance with the Americans with Discdph-logoabilities Act. The new website is accessible at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/ and CDPH’s old website is still accessible at https://archive.cdph.ca.gov/Pages/DEFAULT.aspx.  Documents will be migrated to the new website over time, and most CDPH Office of AIDS (OA) forms and documents will not be migrated to the new website until sometime after the launch of the new site.  In the meantime, we wanted to make sure that you have access to the forms and documents that you need; therefore, we would like to provide you with the following:

NEW Office of AIDS Links: 

 

NEW ADAP Links:

NEW Care Links:

NEW Prevention Links:

 At this link you will find the main Prevention webpage and other important Prevention documents and forms: https://archive.cdph.ca.gov/programs/aids/Pages/tOAprevention.aspx

 

NEW Surveillance Links:

Thank you for the work that you do on behalf of all people in California living with and at risk for HIV.

The Epidemic of Gay Loneliness

This was sent by a friend, John Kirby.

 

Hello everyone,

 

It’s not often that I come across an article about which I feel so strongly that I have to send it to every person I know who works with gay men, either professionally or in 12-step groups – but this is absolutely the best, most relevant piece I’ve read in over ten years. Grab a cup of coffee, it’s a long read, but well worth it for you and your clinicians.
