STI and HIV Services
Our Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Services aim to empower individuals with knowledge, promote testing for early detection, and ensure access to appropriate care and support. We understand that everyone’s needs are unique, which is why we offer a range of programs tailored to address various aspects of sexual health and HIV prevention and treatment. Explore the sections below to learn more about our programs and how they can support you on your journey to a healthier, happier life.

At HJAHC, we’re dedicated to changing the conversation around HIV by offering comprehensive HIV prevention, counseling, testing, and treatment services.
