Get help for HIV

Do you have HIV or think that you might have HIV? Do you want to get tested for HIV or get access to medications that can prevent you from being infected with HIV?

The Ryan White system of care

The Ryan White Program at Hennepin County provides funding for HIV-related services and healthcare targeting low-income residents living with HIV across the 13-county metropolitan area, centered on Hennepin County. HIV care services allow people living with the virus to lead healthy, vibrant lives. These services also stop the virus from spreading.

HIV testing is an important tool to prevent new infections. Today’s test results are available in five minutes. For little or no cost, residents can access HIV testing through primary care providers, community-based settings, private insurance, Medical Assistance, Medicare, and other public health insurance plans.

Get PrEP — the medication that can prevent HIV infections

PrEP is a daily pill for people who don’t have HIV but are at high risk of getting it. This medication, along with condom use, safer sex counseling, and routine testing for sexually transmitted infections, can help reduce your risk of getting HIV. The Red Door Clinic prescribes PrEP.
