Let's End HIV Together

We've been fighting HIV for a long time. With your help, we can End the HIV Epidemic in Seattle and King County by doing these 4 key things. We have the tools, and now is the time.

Let's end HIV together.

Get tested regularly.

Get tested regularly. Knowing your HIV status means you can focus your efforts on staying negative, or on getting treatment to stay healthy and become undetectable.

Treat the infection rapidly

Start HIV treatment right away if you test positive. People living with HIV who are successfully treated become virally suppressed and will live long, healthy lives with no risk of sexually transmitting HIV: Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)

Get PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), is a pill you can take if you are HIV-negative to reduce your risk of becoming infected with HIV. PrEP will NOT protect against any other STDs. You can get a PrEP prescription from a variety of places. Find a location that is most convenient for you.

Also:

Participate in HIV tracing activities

Participate in HIV tracing activities if the health department contacts you. New HIV tracing methods allow us to see where HIV may be spreading most rapidly so we can quickly develop and implement strategies to stop the spread.
