The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) values the health of all Californians and is committed to ensuring its Youth have access to information, prevention, and treatment services for:
- Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
- Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD)
- Hepatitis C (Hep C)
We invite you to explore this website and all of its resources to learn more about HIV, STD, and Hep C in the Youth Community of California.
- Youth aged 20-24 make up 7.4% of California's population but represent 13.7% of new HIV diagnoses, and youth aged 25-29 make up 21.4% of new HIV diagnoses while only representing 6.7% of California's population.
