According to the CDC, “Youth with HIV are the least likely of any age group to be retained in care and have a suppressed viral load.”
Prism proudly collaborates with AIDS Alabama South and the Mobile County Health Department to bring discreet, on-site HIV/STI testing and education to LGBTQ youth. We believe that easy access to service providers and awareness-raising efforts are key tools in the fight to lower rates of transmission. We also believe that HIV+ youth should have access to the resources they need to enjoy the peace of mind and quality of life that they deserve.
Prism United responds to the comprehensive needs of LGBTQ youth. Specifically, Prism works to mitigate the psychological, socio-economic, and academic disadvantages caused by repression and victimization.
