What you can expect to happen when scheduling a testing appointment with the Harm Reduction Program

A Harm Reduction team member will call you back to set up a time and location that is convenient for you.

A Harm Reduction team member can also talk to you about PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), and help connect you with a doctor that can prescribe it to you. PrEP is a daily pill that helps prevent HIV infection. It is taken before a possible exposure to HIV.

If you think you've recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and/or methods to prepare drugs, or if you've been sexually assaulted, seek medical care RIGHT AWAY (Urgent Care, Quick Care, the emergency room, or your local care provider). They can prescribe a medication to stop HIV infection. Medication must be started within 72 hours after a possible exposure to HIV.
