Sexual Health & Prevention
Prevention measures help curb the spread of STIs. DAP offers prevention counseling from condoms to the game changing drugs PrEP and PEP.
Condoms remain the most effective STI prevention tool for those who enjoy multiple sexual partners.
DAP strongly supports Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) as a critical HIV Prevention strategy. We provide PrEP navigation and medication through our DOCK Clinic and Health Center.
Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is prescribed as emergency measure within 72 hours of possible HIV exposure. If you think you've been exposed to HIV, visit an ER immediately.
Anyone ages 13+ can take a Free HIV test at our mobile test locations OR at The DOCK in Palm Springs. The DOCK also offers $25 STI Testing & Treatment!
