Medical Monitoring Project (MMP)

Welcome to the California Medical Monitoring Project!

The CA MMP is a national supplemental HIV/AIDS surveillance project funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and conducted by the California Department of Public Health, Office of AIDS (OA) in collaboration with Stanford University. This project is designed to capture the experiences and needs of people who are getting care for HIV. The state of California is one of 23 states and cities that are participating in this nationwide project.

The goals of this project are to:

  1. provide local, state, and national estimates for the population in care for HIV
  2. determine health-related behaviors and access to and use of prevention and support services
  3. gain knowledge of the care and treatment provided
  4. examine variations of factors by geographic area and patient characteristics.

This project will produce generalizable data that will be analyzed and shared with HIV prevention community planning groups, providers of HIV care, Ryan White CARE Act planning councils, and other stakeholders. This information can be used to support requests for more funding to provide services to people with HIV/AIDS, to help make HIV/AIDS-related policy decisions, and to improve evaluation of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs.

You can do your part, by simply informing yourself first on what the Medical Monitoring Project is all about. This website can help you learn more about the MMP and how you can help make MMP a success.

By working together, we can better serve those living with HIV!
