Prevention Program

Organization: La Clínica del Pueblo

La Clínica provides comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services all under one roof. The Sexual Health Program implements community outreach to educate the Latino community about sexual health, HIV, and promote HIV testing services and conducts condom distribution. Sexual and reproductive health educational charlas and family planning interventions are designed and implemented with the goal of promoting positive sexuality. The program also offers HIV system navigation services, providing early support and access to quality HIV care services to HIV-positive Latinos.
General Navigation Services: STI Testing and Treatment, and PrEP.
Individual Counseling: Sexual and Reproductive Health, HIV/STI Prevention, healthy sexual relationships, family planning, among others.

LGBTQ Health
La Clínica operates two sites and safe spaces called ‘Empodérate Centers’. Our program is the only comprehensive, bilingual HIV prevention program that targets Latino men who have sex with men and transgender Latinas in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. Historically, LGBTQ individuals have been among the most impacted by HIV within the local Latino community. La Clínica addresses this issue by tackling the underlying causes of the epidemic, including stigma, isolation, depression, and the lack of safe and substance/alcohol-free spaces for immigrants that frequently face rejection from families and communities due to homophobia, transphobia, and socioeconomic and immigration status.
Navigation services: Primary care services, HIV Care, legal services, mental health, education, medical insurance, and employment readiness, among other support services.
Individual Counseling: Sexual Health, HIV/STI Prevention, substance use, healthy sexual relationships, among others.
Testing: HIV and STI testing.
Educational Groups: Weekly educational groups for members on the Latinx LGBTQ community and allies.
Workshops: Training and workshops for health promoters and community leaders.
Support Groups: Support groups for people living with HIV.
Activities and Events: Recreational and sports events to encourage peer support, community outreach events, and promotion of healthy sexual practices, HIV prevention and other sexually transmitted infections, rapid HIV and STI testing events.
