Support HIV Services

Last year GLIDE was awarded $77,778 to provide HIV Counseling, Testing and Linkages to other services, and provided 639 HIV Tests. This year, due to Department of Public Health cuts, GLIDE has lost over half our funding and only been awarded $35,000 to provide 250 HIV tests. Furthermore, this funding is to be used exclusively to test gay/bi-men, transgender persons and injection drug users (IDU). GLIDE is committed to findng a way to continue to test high-risk heterosexual men and women too.
