HIV testing and care services locator Web tool
To help fight this disease, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services unveiled the HIV testing and care services locator Web tool through AIDS.gov.
The tool, also available as a free mobile app, more easily finds government data on HIV/AIDS prevention.
By entering a ZIP code in the web tool, a Google map is generated to show the locations of services like HIV testing sites, health centers and substance abuse clinics.
The new tool pulls data from multiple federal government agencies including the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Health Resources and Services Administration, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
