HIV Care Branch

The goals of the HIV Care Branch are to (1) reduce the number of new HIV infections, (2) increase access to quality of care, and (3) reduce HIV/AIDS related health disparities. The HIV Care Branch works toward these goals by administering the following care and housing programs:

Services for these programs are provided by local health departments, community-based organizations, and housing authorities throughout California. Collectively, these programs served almost 16,700 Californians living with HIV.


The AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System (ARIES) is a centralized HIV/AIDS client management system that allows for coordination of client services among medical care and support providers and provides comprehensive data for program reporting and monitoring. All HIV Care Branch programs use ARIES to automate, plan, manage, and report on client data.

For technical assistance, please contact the ARIES Help Desk. They are open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Pacific Time). To reach the Help Desk:

When contacting the ARIES Help Desk, do NOT include any confidential client information in e-mails or voice messages.
