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

ning given the rise in new cases of HIV among certain groups. A lot of people are making a lot of money providing services”.

Neither Good Samaritan Project, Kansas City Care Clinic, or The Kansas City Public Health Department mention Post Exposure Prophylaxis on their websites even though it has been recommended since 2005.

This following excerpt is taken from the “Myth vs. Fact” section of Good Samaritan Project’s website – no mention of PEP as a standard HIV prevention method:

“Myth: I’m not worried about becoming HIV positive — new drugs will keep heal me.

Fact: Antiretroviral drugs are improving and extending the lives of many HIV-infected people. However, many of these drugs are expensive and have serious side effects. Also, drug-resistant strains of HIV make treatment increasingly challenging.

“We only hope it doesn’t have anything to with nearly $2.5 million a year that a handful of individuals and contractors are receiving from the Federal Government through the Ryan White Care Act,” says Rice. “In order to remain eligible, the city must have had 1000 cases of HIV over the last five years.”
