Business Responds to AIDS

Special Notice

Due to heightened concern regarding the spread of COVID-19, the HIP team is providing safer sex material deliveries to our Business Responds to AIDS (BRTA) partners through a contactless delivery. If you are a BRTA partner and are in need of additional materials, please contact us at (352)415-0464.

About Business Responds to AIDS (BRTA)

Local businesses are invited to participate in Business Responds to AIDS, a partnership between WellFlorida Council’s High Impact Prevention project and businesses interested in ending HIV/AIDS. Participating businesses provide prevention messages and materials to customers, employees and neighborhoods, and can also serve as a free HIV testing site. The program helps to raise community awareness about HIV/AIDS, motivate residents in high prevalence neighborhoods to get tested, increase the number of persons who know their HIV status and link them to services. It’s free and easy to participate, and HIP will help you get started.

Interested? Contact Us or call.

Business Responds to AIDS Partner Appreciation

This week our highlighted BRTA partner is the Suwannee River Area Health Education Center (AHEC)! SRAHEC is a public health nonprofit. Their professional staff members seek to assist individuals who have basic health needs, as well as train health professionals and students to better serve their patients. Their services include: Conference Management, Continuing Education, Webinar Hosting, and Free Tobacco Cessation and Training. SRAHEC services 12 counties in North Central Florida: Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Marion, Putnam, Suwannee, and Union. They got involved in the Business Responds to AIDS project because, “Our mission is to promote and provide access to quality health connections for our community. Becoming a Business Responds to AIDS community partner has given SRAHEC the opportunity to join the fight against HIV/AIDS by spreading prevention messages and passing out free condoms in our local communities.”

Thank you to Suwannee River Area Health Education Center for being a committed BRTA partner!
