Community-Based HIV Testing, Outreach, and Condom Distribution

Community-Based Rapid HIV Testing is an effective way to bring HIV testing awareness to communities. MBK provides free and confidential Rapid HIV Testing throughout the Jackson, MS Metropolitan Statistical Area (Hinds, Rankin, Madison, Simpson, and Copiah counties). All Rapid HIV Tests are conducted using Clearview complete, with results available in twenty minutes. Community-based Rapid HIV testing events are conducted in venues such as: schools, churches, community events, clubs, parks, colleges and universities. In addition to Rapid HIV Testing, MBK also offers syphilis tests through clinic and community-based testing. Syphilis results are available in seven days. Community Based Outreach provides educational materials and holistic health services information to communities throughout the Jackson MSA. Outreach staff also disseminates over 10,000 free condoms monthly through the Keep Your Clients Coming Initiative.
