All About "ACAP" (AIDS Care Access Project)

July 14, 2003

ACAP connects persons living with HIV/AIDS to:

  • experienced doctors

  • health insurance options

Which Doctors Are Available?

Among the many excellent doctors in King County who treat HIV/AIDS, you can request:

  • a male or female doctor
  • a doctor with a practice near your home or office
  • a doctor who charges lower fees
  • a private doctor or community clinic
