HIV & STD TESTING AND TREATMENT

We believe that regular testing for HIV and STDs is an integral part of a person’s overall health care plan.

If you are sexually active, be sure to get tested for HIV at least every six months and make screening for STDs a normal part of your checkup. Talk with one of our medical providers for a schedule that’s right for you.

HIV and STDs are often spread because people do not even know they have them. Many young gay and bisexual men, transgender women, and women of color in Los Angeles are at higher risk for HIV and STDs.

Getting tested regularly for HIV is one of the best ways to stay healthy and safe.

One in seven people who are living with HIV don’t know it, and most HIV infections are transmitted by people who do not know their status.

Testing for HIV is easy and quick.
