You’re worth protecting.

Reduce the health risks, like HIV, associated with drug use.

Sharing needles and works can spread infections like HIV and hepatitis C.

HIV transmission is approaching crisis levels in many communities, including Butler County. There has been a 300% increase in the county since 2020—most of these new HIV infections are among people who inject drugs.

To help you stay safe, we’ve partnered with agencies, like Regional Harm Reduction Collaborative, around Butler County. We offer FREE confidential HIV and hepatitis C testing plus harm reduction supplies to help you remain safe and healthy while using drugs and having sex. Test results come back quickly, with a simple finger prick.
