The AIDS Project of the East Bay is a community based organization, dedicated to preventing the spread of HIV and supporting individuals infected with the virus through programs targeted at some of the most vulnerable and marginalized individuals in Alameda County. APEB ensures that individuals and communities beyond reach of other agencies receive professional services of the highest standard.

They offer a variety of services including a drop-in clinic for trans youth and a wellness center for people without insurance. They offer free massages to their clients.

The Wellness Center provides free healthcare services for individuals living with HIV who can't afford healthcare. Case workers help clients get medication through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). No HIV Positive person needing medical care is turned away from the APEB Wellness Center.

Since 1983 the APEB Wellness Center has been providing high quality, state of the art, conscientious care to support the health of our clients in mind, body and spirit. At two convenient locations APEB Wellness Center provides: Primary Health Care, Acute Care, Physicals, Vaccines and a variety of HIV related Lab work. The Wellness Center also includes a Counseling Center staffed by two Psychologists, and a mental health Case Worker. Patients with concerns about issues related to mental health, substance use, anxiety, depression, or who may just feel like they need to talk are eligible for free counseling with our skilled team.
