The HIV Care Now program aims to reach people who are at increased risk of becoming infected with HIV and people living with HIV who may be at risk of transmitting the virus to others.
Educational program activities include:
- Community outreach
- Risk reduction counseling
- Individual and group level interventions
- Health communication/public information seminars
- Community level interventions
Our Health Educators hold one-on-one health education sessions to promote understanding of HIV and how it impacts the lives of individuals.
HIV Positive Peer Educational Support Groups educate HIV+, high risk individuals, partners, and spouses.
Health Education also helps identify, counsel, and provide HIV pre-exposure medication (PrEP) to individuals who are at high risk for HIV acquisition. PrEP is a comprehensive HIV prevention strategy that involves the daily use of antiretroviral medications to reduce the risk of HIV infection in HIV-negative individuals.
Our Test & Treat program provides linkage to HIV care and initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) within three business days of the positive HIV diagnose or a gap in HIV medical services.
