Testing, Prevention & Mobile Outreach
CONFIDENTIAL | ON-LOCATION | TREATMENT FAST-TRACK
Using a mobile outreach approach, our testing and prevention programs aim to reduce the number of new HIV, hep-C and sexually transmitted infections by bringing services to clients on their own turf.
Project Safety Net offers confidential screenings and evidence-based interventions. We link clients to medical care, counseling, and case management. We provide fast-tracking for substance abuse treatment and PrEP/PEP referrals. Our network of providers spans the island.
