Questions? Contact


We can connect you with vetted and trusted HIV medical case managers, HIV care providers and medication adherence counselors. Not insured? We can also assist you with health insurance enrollment and navigating medication access programs for those who are unable to access insurance.


If you’re HIV-negative or do not know your status, we have PrEP counselors who can connect you with providers, help you navigate insurance and assist you with resources to cover any out-of-pocket costs related to the medication. Our counselors will help you learn about and access PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), which is a daily medication regimen to prevent HIV infection.
