STD PREVENTION

STD/STI/HIV INFO FOR MSM IN THE PORTLAND/VANCOUVER METRO AREA

As part of this website's continued public service goals, I am revisiting a feature I had dropped for the previous year and a half, HIV/STD/STI infections info for men who have sex with men MSM. 

Why MSM featured only: The info available is for all gender and sexual identities. However, this series was created to educate and combat rapidly rising syphilis rates, of which MSM are the majority of new infections in the area.

In the gallery here, you can see a series of free posters, available for download by clicking on any of the images. 

For quick reference, here are some local websites and phone numbers for those in need of testing and information regarding testing and treatment options in the Portland and Vancouver metro area.
