TO pREVENT hiv...

USE CONDOMS

Condoms are physical barriers that can reduce the risk of a sexual exposure to HIV because they are made of materials that do not allow HIV to pass through them. 

GET TESTED

Just by getting tested you can protect yourself and your loved ones from contracting HIV. Knowledge is power. Its quick, easy and free with us. Book your confidential appointment with us.

TAKE PrEP

It's a daily pill that can help prevent HIV. If you don't have HIV, taking PrEP every day can lower your chances of getting HIV from sex by more than 90%. PrEP is also known by the brand names Truvada and Descovy.

TALK ABOUT IT

Talking about your sexual health can help save your life, as well as the lives of others. Protect your partner or protect yourself just by talking about it. 

IF TESTED...

Negative

  • Ask us for advice on staying negative (including PrEP). 

  • Protect yourself during sex.

  • Never share needles and syringes.

  • Ask for regular HIV and STI tests.

Positive

  • Ask us about the facts of living with HIV. 

  • Find out where you can begin treatment.

  • Get advice and support.

  • Tell your sexual partners they should also get tested.

IF EXPOSED TO HIV

If you are HIV-negative and you think you may have been recently exposed to HIV your best option is PEP. You must start it within 72 hours after you were exposed to HIV, or it won’t work. Every hour counts.

WE RECOMmEND GETTING Tested EVERY 3 to 6 MONTHS.
