The HIV Prevention and Outreach Program is composed of five primary services:
Prevention Education: A number of educational methods are used including lecture, video, skills demonstrations, risk assessments, and group activities.

Community Outreach: Health Communication and Public Information which includes HIV 101 and STD educations, Hepatitis C education, and literature/condom distribution, to include evidence-based health education intervention, VOICES/VOCES.

Individual Risk-Reduction Counseling: Intensive risk reduction counseling conducted within a support group setting combined with one-on-one counseling services. These programs are geared towards HIV positive individuals, their partners, and those at extremely high risk of contracting HIV. Evidence-based programming such as Comprehensive Risk Reduction Counseling (CRCS) and CLEAR interventions are utilized to reduce transmission of HIV.

Oraquick HIV Testing: HIV testing is offered in community settings. The Oraquick HIV test is an oral mouth swab that does not require blood or needles. Results are available in 20 minutes. RESPECT, an evidence-based counseling intervention, is incorporated into testing services.


Preventing the spread of HIV in Knox and the surrounding counties in East Tennessee.

The purpose of the HIV Prevention and Outreach Program is to identify and serve the HIV prevention needs of Knoxville and the surrounding communities through education. We follow the reported trends of HIV infection to ensure that our efforts are concentrated on those persons most at-risk for contracting the virus.
