STI/HIV Prevention Program

The Health Department provides free quality services to our clients to prevent the spread of STD’s and HIV/AIDS through education, testing, treatment counseling and partner referral services for persons infected. To obtain counseling and referrals for treatment, call (804) 482-5461.

We offer quality services with fees based on a sliding scale.

The STI Clinic, located at 400 E. Cary Street, serves patients on a first-come, first-served basis on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. STI Clinic registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. until capacity is reached.

We also have a screening-only clinic from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday nights. This is an ideal option for people with no signs or symptoms to get tested. No treatment is offered at this clinic. Please call (804) 482-5500 for more information.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV (PrEP):  Call 205-3508 for information regarding PrEP, a once-a-day pill that can reduce the risk of acquiring HIV for HIV-negative individuals at very high risk of coming in contact with the infection.

Case management:  We offer linkage to medical care and case management services to individuals with HIV infection.  Call 205-3736 for more information.
