Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Thought this forum would be a great place to share this info.  You can get the app on Apple products.  Evidently, it isn't available for Android.  However, you can still go to the website.  I went on the website version, put in my city, and found the clinic where I get treatment and the agency that handles ADAP.  I even put in an obscure city, Yazoo City, Mississippi, and it gave me info.

Aisha Moore, communications director for AIDS.gov, describes the HIV/AIDS Prevention & Service Provider Locator -- a location-based search tool that allows the user to search for the following service providers near their current location: HIV testing, housing assistance, health centers, Ryan White HIV care, mental health, substance abuse, and family planning. She explains that since its launch in June 2010 by members of the Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council, the locator has gone from the Web to a widget, a mobile, Facebook, and API format, and is now available as an app for iPhone and iPad. A user with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch can download and use the free app.

The blog provides details of how to download the app and how it works, new features that are not available on the Web or mobile versions, and the type of data that can be retrieved. Moore encourages users to download the app, spread the word to friends, and take action. She notes that the app is especially recommended for use by social workers, outreach workers, and others who link people to services. Users who do not have an iPhone should visit http://locator.aids.gov to use the Web or mobile version. To send feedback, comments, or suggestions a user can select the app's feedback button.
