Aunt Rita’s promotes HIV testing for every Arizonan, and can help people connect with either prevention (condoms and PrEP) or treatment.
Aunt Rita's Programs
Normalized HIV testing is Aunt Rita’s mission. Through GetTestedAZ.org, Arizona adults can request a free HIV test voucher at trusted healthcare partners or receive a free home HIV test.
Our information and referral program, HIVAZ Connect, can help people find medical providers and support services whether you’re HIV negative or HIV positive.
Aunt Rita’s promotes free HIV testing throughout Arizona. Order a free voucher for testing at Sonora Quest Laboratories or Albertsons/Safeway pharmacies, or order a home HIV test kit for testing in the comfort of your own home.
Aunt Rita's also has other programs beyond offering HIV testing kits, including Education and Advocacy (to eliminate stigma surrounding HIV), as well as HIV and Aging (for long-time survivors reaching their later years).
HIVAZ Connect is Aunt Rita's information and referral program. Through HIVAZ.org and VIHAZ.org, as well as with personalized information and referral Aunt Rita's is connecting Arizonans to HIV prevention and treatment.
Aunt Rita's HIV testing initiatives offer Arizonans the opportunity to get tested for free in the comfort of their own home with our home HIV test kit program or at one of more than 100 locations throughout Arizona at your neighborhood Walgreen's, Safeway, or Sonora Quest Labs.
Education and Advocacy
Aunt Rita's promotes HIV awareness and helps to eliminate stigma through its media campaigns throughout Arizona. Through advocacy we help to create policies and legislation that will help us end HIV by 2030!
HIV and Aging
The rapidly aging HIV positive community needs specialized support and Aunt Rita's is building programs that will enhance aging-related services to ensure that they offer this unique community services with dignity and respect.
