CHOOSE TO PROTECT

HIV and STI transmissions are declining around the US.  However, they're on the rise in Florida.  Everyone who is sexually active or uses intravenous drugs is at some level of risk.  Additionally, everyone can do something about the HIV and STI epidemic.

 

Join Hope & Help in the movement to end the spread of HIV and STIs.  The Choose to Protect Campaign is made up of two important parts.  First, Hope & Help aims to raise awareness about HIV and STI prevention, testing, and treatment.  Second, Hope & Help seeks to increase financial support in order to continue providing much needed health services and resources for those at risk.  You can be part of #ChooseToProtect movement in many ways and they're all quite easy!

HISTORY

Hope & Help began in 1988 as a small support group of a few friends who cared for a close friend who was dying of AIDS-related complications.  Since then, Hope & Help has grown into one of the most comprehensive HIV/STI service organizations in Florida, with a full medical clinic, in addition to testing, education, prevention, case management, and support group services.

 

Today, the organization offers HIV/STI preventive and treatment services in English and Spanish to thousands of patients across Florida, including Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Seminole, and Miami.
