How can we help you thrive?
Knowledge is Key
Anyone can contract the HIV virus. No one is immune to HIV. Men, women, and children can acquire the virus.
It is very important to be informed on how the virus is passed from person to person. It is just as critical to understand how you can’t get HIV in order to lessen fear and misunderstanding.
All services here are provided confidentially. As a client, please respect the confidentiality of other persons you may meet through your participation at Basin Assistance Services.
