HIV Prevention & Care​


Diverse Solutions for HIV Prevention & Care

Affinia Healthcare is committed to reducing new HIV infections in the U.S. by 75 percent by 2025, and a staggering 90 percent by 2030. Our experienced team is here to talk with you privately and confidentially about HIV.

Your health is our priority.


How to Prevent HIV

1. Practice Safe Sex: Consistently using condoms during sexual intercourse can greatly reduce the risk of HIV transmission.

2. Get Tested – know your status: Regular HIV testing helps you know your status and seek timely medical care if needed, preventing the spread of the virus to others.

3. Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP): Taking PrEP medication daily can significantly lower your risk of contracting HIV, especially if you’re in a high-risk group.

4. Avoid Sharing Needles: If you inject drugs, always use sterile needles and never share them with others to prevent both HIV and other infections.

Taking proactive steps in health care has never been easier. With our Rapid Start PrEP Program, you can begin your preventative care journey swiftly and smoothly. Here are some benefits of PrEP:

• Fast-track Consultations: No long waits, get started immediately.

PrEP can help protect you if you DON’T have HIV and ANY of the following applies to you:

1. You have had anal or vaginal sex in the past 6 months and:
      • have a sexual partner with HIV (especially if the partner has an unknown or detectable viral load)
      • have not consistently used a condom, or
      • have been diagnosed with an STD in the past 6 months

2. You inject drugs and:
      • have an injection partner with HIV, or
      • share needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment (for example, cookers)

Ready to start? Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation and learn more about how PrEP can be part of your health routine.
