APLA Health’s HIV/Hep C Health Promotion Program is implementing a new program for the City and County of Los Angeles, HIVE (HIV-Elders), tailored for men who have sex with men (MSM) of all ethnicities who are 50 years of age and older and living with HIV.
HIVE is designed to improve the health and well-being of this growing population of men by addressing stigma, social isolation, social support, and empowerment.
Social support groups provide spaces for safe conversation, building friendships, and emotional support.
Life Skills Support
We provide skills for daily living to enhance quality of life, like taking care of one’s healthcare needs while managing Medicare and personal finances.
Our health education program focuses on the issues that affect older men the most, like managing chronic medical conditions and the multiple medications used to treat them.
We sponsor group activities to foster community among people living with HIV and help them become flexible, resilient, and confident in their abilities. This also increases their visibility in other communities and spreads awareness of their presence and importance.
