AIDS Project of the East Bay (APEB) is a community based organization, dedicated to preventing the spread of HIV and supporting individuals infected with the virus through programs targeted at some of the most vulnerable and marginalized individuals in Alameda County. APEB ensures that individuals and communities beyond reach of other agencies receive professional services of the highest standard.
Since 1983, APEB has served communities east of the San Francisco Bay with primary health care services, access to life saving drugs, mental health counseling, and a variety of alternative and supplemental services.
APEB and The Wellness Center Primary Care Clinic provide comprehensive, coordinated client-centered care for people living with or without HIV, including addressing HIV-related co-occurring conditions and challenges meeting basic needs, such as housing, transportation, and nutrition.
Our Health Promotions Testing & Outreach Team educates constituents about HIV testing, prevention, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and the benefits of treatment. Healthlink Patient Care Coordinators link people to care immediately after diagnosis and support retention in care to achieve viral suppression that can maximize the benefits of early treatment and reduce transmission risk.
