HIV/AIDS Patient Care

Florida Department of Health in Broward County


Early entry into care and adherence to anti-retroviral therapy improves health outcomes to people living with HIV/AIDS and also reduces transmission.  As part of the continuum of HIV/AIDs patient care in Broward County, the Florida Department of Health in Broward County offers the following HIV/AIDS patient care programs listed below.

AIDS Drugs Assistance Program

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a statewide, federally funded prescription medication program for low income people living with HIV. This program provides medications to uninsured or underinsured individuals living with HIV, authorized under 42 U.S.C. § 300ff-26. Services are provided through the distribution of medication directly to eligible clients or by purchase of health insurance that includes coverage for HIV/AIDS medications.

Our mission is to provide access to HIV-related prescription drugs, disease management expertise, and support services to our clients in the most cost-effective manner.

If you are HIV positive and:

  • In need of HIV/AIDS prescriptions.
  • Have income at 400% or less of the Federal Poverty Level.
  • Are uninsured or do not have adequate prescription coverage.
  • Are not confined to a hospital, nursing home, hospice, or correctional facility.
