HIV / AIDS Services
What We Do
Nevada County Public Health offers confidential HIV testing, as well as case management services to our community members who are living with AIDS or who are HIV positive. These services are confidential and focus on supporting the client in maintaining their health and well-being.
HIV Testing and Counseling Clinic
Nevada County Public Health offers free, confidential testing for HIV. No appointment is necessary but our hours are limited. More information on our HIV testing clinic is here. This program is funded by a grant from NorCal AIDS Cycle.
NorCal AIDS Cycle raises most of their funds via a bike road race held every May. If you are interested in participating, either as a rider or a crew member, please contact them and you will be helping to support our HIV Testing and Counseling program and many other important programs across Northern California.
Case Management Services
Nevada County Public Health provides case management services for individuals living with AIDS or HIV and their families. Case management services are focused on supporting the health and well-being of our community members living with AIDS or HIV.
These services may include direct assistance with outpatient and ambulatory health services; housing (including short-term rental or mortgage assistance), short-term assistance with utility payments, prevention of homelessness, assistance with paying for medical prescriptions, oral health care referrals, health insurance premium and cost sharing assistance for low-income individuals, home health care, medical nutrition therapy, hospice services, mental health services, substance abuse outpatient care, and medical case management services.
Funding sources for case management include: Ryan White HIV / AIDS Program; AIDS Drug Assistant Program (ADAP); Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA); and local funding from HALO Gold Country, and Unity in the Gold Country.
