Until there’s a cure, the vision of Desert AIDS Project is of healthy individuals, families, and communities, despite the existence of HIV. Since 1984, D.A.P. has strived to bring this vision to life because the mission of Desert AIDS Project is to enhance health and well-being.
With help from Revivals, D.A.P. offers an amazing array of client services from its Palm Springs campus, including case management, primary and HIV-specialty medical care, an HIV-specialty dental clinic, food and housing support, Eastern medicine alternatives, in-house lab services and pharmacy, mental health and substance abuse programs, a full-service community center, and much more.
Understanding that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is still with us after more than three decades, D.A.P. has helped organize “Get Tested Coachella Valley,” the nation’s first region-wide initiative to get everyone tested, free and confidentially, for HIV. The commitment is to provide linkage to care for those who are positive and education for those who are negative, in order to bring about an “AIDS-free generation.”
