The UCLA Center for Clinical AIDS Research and Education (CARE) provides state-of-the-art medical care and conducts clinical trials for people living with HIV and AIDS. CARE staff go to community centers, support groups and research symposia to present updates and educational sessions on current treatment, research and prevention.
In addition to being a multidisciplinary outpatient clinic, CARE conducts clinical investigations and clinical trials in all areas of HIV therapeutic research and co-infections and provides HIV education and training. CARE’s clinical trials are open to anyone who meets the enrollment criteria. Study visits are free, and upon completion of the study, CARE tries to link participants to ongoing treatment and care.
