Shame is the enemy of vulnerability and action. HIV is a virus just like COVID-19 or the Flu. HIV is not a crime. If you think you might have HIV, give us a call. We can help you get confidential testing and free treatment.

HIV and COVID-19

We are still learning about COVID-19 and how it affects people with HIV. Based on what we know at this time, people with HIV may be more likely to become severely ill from COVID-19.

Other factors can also make you more likely to become severely ill, such as age and certain underlying medical conditions. Older adults, people with certain medical conditions, and pregnant and recently pregnant people should take preventive actions to protect themselves from getting COVID-19.
