HIV AIDS Prevention & Service Provider Locator Search Tool and Widget

The HIV/AIDS Prevention & Service Provider Locator feature on aids.gov is a first-of-its-kind, location-based search tool that allows you to search for testing services, housing providers, health centers and other service providers near your current location.

The tool takes advantage of open data from HHS agencies such as CDC, SAMHSA and HRSA, along with other Federal departments like HUD, to allow searches across many service provider databases at one time. Results are displayed on a dynamic map, marking each service provider near the location you searched. You can view the provider’s contact information, which services they provide, and get directions to the provider’s location.

You can also download the Locator Widget to add to your website.
