End the HIV Epidemic
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. Knowing your HIV status means you can focus your efforts on staying negative, or on getting treatment to stay healthy and become undetectable.
Start HIV treatment right away if you test positive (PDF, see listings for providers under the Medical/Dental/Pharmacy section). 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)
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.
