The Durham County Department of Public Health would like to assist you in starting PrEP for HIV prevention. We offer FREE testing and referral to a PrEP prescriber.

We are partnered with 3 local PrEP providers.

If you would like to make an appointment for PrEP screening and counseling, please call 919-560-8819 and leave a message with your name, date of birth and telephone number. A staff member will return your call shortly to schedule your appointment. The screening visit and the lab tests are free of charge. After you are tested, you will make a second appointment with a PrEP prescriber.

One of our PrEP partners is in Clinic 7 of the Durham County Health and Humans Services Building (next door to Clinic 6, where your first appointment will be.)
