On #GivingTuesday, let's focus on the positive:
happier, healthier people make happier, healthier communities.
Each year, PATF
conducts more than 2,000
free and anonymous HIV tests, linking newly diagnosed
individuals to the care and essential services needed to stay healthy,
happy, and less likely to transmit the virus to others.
on finding new infections, re-engaging those infected who have
been lost to care, and helping our nearly 700 clients
get the care they need, PATF is helping bring down the rate of
new infections in our community.
By finding and supporting those infected with HIV, we
are preventing new infections and
we can't continue
this without your support.
