HIV/STI Testing

Every year millions of people are diagnosed with HIV and STIs in the United States.

The majority of new infections could be stopped with the proper care and treatment. STIs, in particular, are more common than most people think, especially among young, sexually active individuals.

That’s why our diverse HIV/STI prevention staff are located throughout Ohio.
