After inquiry into Kansas City Public Health Department, local start-Up offers 24/7 anonymous HIV testing
Date:12/2/2013

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

PEP Angels announced today that it will begin delivering HIV exams to metro-area homes twenty-four hours a day - seven days a week - according to Matt Rice, who founded PEP Angels in March of 2013.

Many reports state that nearly 1 in 5 people are unaware of their HIV status. Given the statistics about condom use, Rice says: “we’ve got to make it as easy as possible for people to get tested – whenever and however they want”.

PEP Angels will deliver an OraSure HIV exam at any time of the day or night in Kansas City for $15 dollars. Local pharmacies are charging $40 for the exact same exam.    

“People don’t always tell you the truth about their status. There is still an awful stigma surrounding the disease that hinders many people’s ability to show candor when it comes to their sexual health” says Rice, commenting on the David Mangum, who continued engaging in high-risk sexual behavior after contracting HIV nearly a decade ago. Magnum claimed that he had unprotected sex with as many as 300 partners.

Suggesting that access to 24/7 rapid HIV testing will deter risky behavior, Rice says: “We’ll deliver an HIV exam at 2pm or 2am, all you have to do is ask your partner if they’re willing to take an HIV exam. If the exam comes back positive, we will help you acquire Post Exposure
