AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

Mission:

To provide confidential, culturally sensitive HIV services for individuals with HIV, their negative partners, and other family members by engaging them into care and treatment and by encouraging medication adherence and ongoing testing.

 

Vision:

To increase awareness of the risk factors of HIV transmission and prevention among the high-risk population in the BVHP community

  • To prolong the health and productivity of the population
