HIV/AIDS Prevention - HIV/AIDS Health Care and Support Services
This program offers free, anonymous and confidential HIV testing, counseling as well as referral services.
When people living with HIV/AIDS achieve the best possible outcomes they are far less likely to transmit HIV infection to others. So the primary goal of HIV Prevention and Health Care Support Services is to keep people connected to health care and support.
