General Council Services

ITTS - Integrated Targeted Testing Services

The Council provides HIV and STD counseling and testing services in Chatham, Alamance, Randolph, Orange, Lee, Durham and Wake Counties. Staff provide testing in non-traditional testing sites with collaborative agencies and out in the streets of these communities. No one will be turned away if they want to get tested. Priority populations are Men who have sex with men (MSM), minorities, IV drug users, and high risk individuals.

Substance Abuse Center Testing (SAC)

The Council Provides HIV and STD counseling and testing and risk reduction for people receiving services in substance abuse programs. There are seven collaborative base Substance Abuse Agencies that the council provides testing services for in 20 counties (Anson, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Hoke, Randolph, Scottland, Harnett, Forsythe, Guilford, Davidson, Chatham, Johnston, Cumberland, Robeson, Rowen, Stanly, Richmond, Durham, Orange)

Case Management

The Council provides a bi-lingual HIV Medical Case Manager for the Region Network 6 -  Access Network of Care (ANOC). People who test positive for HIV work with a case management to get into and stay in care services.

Educational Presentations (Prevention Education)

The Council provides HIV and STD educational information to workplaces, schools, community organizations, or at other community events. The presentations include information about how these diseases affect the community and how one can protect him/herself.

Condom-mobile

The original Condom-mobile is a van that was donated to the Council which has been decorated with messages such as "Stay Safe- Protect Yourself!". The Council took this van to its street fairs, and to deliver its educational and safety materials to numerous locations in serviced communities. The goal was to break down the stigma of sexual issues by addressing them openly in a lighthearted and responsible manner. In 2013, Crape Myrtle Festival provided a grant to help purchase a new condom-mobile. THANK YOU CRAPE MYRTLE FESTIVAL!!!
