HIV testing and management services remain a large part of Care Resource’s focus. We provide HIV testing, HIV education, STD screenings and STD education. To further promote overall health in our community, condom packets have been developed to further showcase Care Resource’s (PEP) and (PrEP) services. In addition to condoms and lubricants, these packets now include information of where to access Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) management services.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. When taken consistently, PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection in people who are at high risk by up to 92%. PrEP is much less effective if it is not taken consistently.
PrEP is a powerful HIV prevention tool and can be combined with condoms and other prevention methods to provide even greater protection than when used alone. But people who use PrEP must commit to taking the drug every day and seeing their health care provider for follow-up every 3 months.
Care Resource is most inspired by the ability to bring much needed healthcare services to vulnerable families and individuals in our South Florida community. Our dedicated Providers and staff go the extra mile each day to improve the overall quality of life of those who we serve in our communities and workplace by being Committed to service that is Competent and Compassionate for all.
