Triad Health Project (THP), a medical case management non-profit based out of Guilford County, began in 1986 as a grassroots effort among fourteen friends to deal with the emerging health crisis and the barriers and discrimination their friends with HIV and AIDS were facing. Through the years, our services have adapted to the changing reality of HIV management.
While THP’s testing and case management services are specific to those living in Guilford County, our partnership with the Atlanta-based company QCare+ allows us to increase access to PrEP for anyone in North Carolina. PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is medicine that reduces your chances of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use.
When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV, reducing the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99%. As PrEP is currently only available with a prescription, increasing access to the treatment is crucial to preventing the spread of HIV. That’s where our partnership with QCare+ comes in.
You can sign-up with QCare+ in minutes, and 99% of QCare+ users pay nothing for their medical visits, labs, and prescription for PrEP. Our goal as the only partner agency in the state with QCare+ is to help as many people learn about, and access PrEP as possible!
