Protecting our communities by linking HIV prevention and primary care.

Kentucky has been identified as one of 7 states in the country that is at highest risk of an outbreak of HIV. Garrard, Rockcastle and Estill Counties have been listed on the CDC’s 220 counties across the nation most vulnerable to an HIV outbreak.

Estill County ranks #25 on this list.
Rockcastle County ranks #40.

HIV prevention is a real and present public health need in our communities. As a Community Health Center, White House Clinics is responding to this need.

HIV is most frequently spread through unprotected sexual activity and the sharing of injection drug equipment. Because many of our communities continue to experience a high level of stigma around sexual behaviors, substance use, and HIV, we know that many of our patients and community members may be hesitant to be open with their provider about their risk for contracting HIV.

To make HIV testing and prevention easily accessed by members of our communities, we’re bringing services out of the clinic and into the community. Our Primary Care HIV Prevention team can offer community-based HIV testing, access to PrEP for HIV prevention, and other primary care treatment and screenings.

  • WE BELIEVE that every person has the right to protection from HIV infection and to treatments that allow individuals living with HIV to live the life they enjoy.
  • WE COMMIT to providing HIV testing and prevention services without judgment. Our team of healthcare professionals is ready to be a safe place to discuss your risk for HIV and steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones from HIV infection.

What We Do

    • Mobile Medical Care: Our mobile Primary Care HIV Prevention team can offer HIV testing, STI testing, and other primary care screenings and treatment out of our mobile unit. The unit is designed to be a medical clinic on wheels, so you can expect a visit with a provider and the clinical support of an RN.
    • PrEP Prescribing: Our mobile Primary Care HIV Prevention team is able to talk with you about a range of HIV prevention methods, including access to PrEP, a daily medication to prevent HIV infection. This care team is ready to help you access medications in an affordable way, and will provide follow up support if you begin or continue taking PrEP.
    • Enabling Services: Our Community Health Worker will help you identify any barriers to your healthcare, such as transportation, housing, food insecurity, personal safety, substance use or mental health treatment needs. Our Community Health Worker can help link you to resources to help meet those needs during your visit and will continue to provide support to help you fully access healthcare services.
