People participating in an AIDS Walk


AIDS Walk: A Vital Lifeline for People Living With HIV in Los Angeles County

AIDS Walk LA is the world’s first walk to fight HIV and AIDS. Back in 1985, a group of fed-up activists, patients, advocates, and friends put their soles on the line to shake the government into action at the beginning of the AIDS crisis. And it happened on the streets of Los Angeles.

Since that first Walk, hundreds of thousands of walkers and their supporters have raised more than $92 million for APLA Health and other community organizations to combat HIV and AIDS.

Los Angeles County continues to have the second largest number of people living with HIV in the country. AIDS Walk Los Angeles provides three main types of services to fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic and for health care justice:

  • CARE: LGBTQ+ primary medical care, dental care, and behavioral health care (as a federally qualified health center),
  • SUPPORT: critical HIV support services (including the nation’s largest food bank for people living with HIV – the Vance North Necessities of Life Program), and
  • EDUCATION: HIV prevention, health & wellness programs and advocacy to ensure continued care.
