PrEP is a daily pill for people who do not have HIV and are looking to stay HIV-negative. When taken as prescribed, PrEP reduces the risk of infection by up to 99% from sex and up to 70% for people who inject drugs.
REFERRAL TO CARE
Our overall goal is to help identify those who are living with HIV (who may be unaware) and link them to care.
El Centro / The HUB is a Prevention department entity at AIDS Alabama Inc.; it began as a safe space created in 2011 for young, gay men of color. Since, it has evolved into an affirming space welcoming those of varying walks of life interested in learning more about their sexual health. All education, community outreach, programs, and social events are focused heavily on reducing/eliminating the stigma surrounding sexual orientation and/or serostatus. Services provided in the space include:
HIV 101 and STI education

Case management services
Transportation/navigational services for medical appointments
Michael’s Clothing Closet
