Welcome to the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Division at the Florida Department of Health in Leon County!
The division serves residents of Leon County as well as the following Big Bend and Panhandle counties: Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla and Washington.
Administrative Team: The Administrative Team provides fiscal management of local budget and resources for the regional operation of DOH-funded activities. We provide access to HIV/AIDS prevention, care and support to clients throughout our area by contracting with local health service partners. The Administrative Team is led by the HIV/AIDS program coordinator (HAPC), who provides supervision, guidance, training and support to all program staff. The Administrative Team also provides local logistical support and is the primary contact for information, requests for support and program management. The HAPC has oversight of each team and can facilitate team functions.
Community Mobilization Team: The early intervention consultant (EIC) provides technical assistance to our local and regional testing locations and test sites. Our EIC also acts as a prevention training consultant, providing access to health education and risk reduction trainings throughout the area. The area minority AIDS coordinator (MAC) is responsible for providing training and health education resources and addresing issues and concerns that impact our minority and underserved populations. The EIC and MAC are the primary points of contact to request speakers, capacity-building assistance and printed health education materials in support of community events.
Patient Care Team: The Patient Care Team includes the area surveillance coordinator, the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) coordinator for Leon County and the regional linkage and reengagement coordinator (RLRC). The area surveillance coordinator is the primary contact for local and regional health care institutions, laboratories and other HIV/AIDS reporting entities. The ADAP coordinator is reponsible for ADAP service enrollment and for providing medication access assistance and counseling to clients enrolled in the ADAP program. The RLRC is responsible for rapidly linking newly diagnosed and previously-diagnosed-but-out-of-care HIV-positive individuals to care and treatment services.
