• What We Do

    One Tent Health provides free HIV screening and rapid PrEP initiation in the most underserved areas of our nation’s capital.

     

    Our mission is to save and extend lives. We minimize the stress and complexity of the path from unknown HIV status to managed care for all people by using a community centered, low cost approach.

     

    It's simple:

    We take what people need, and bring it to where they are.

     

    We partner with local community hubs like grocery stores and laundromats in Washington, DC’s most HIV-burdened neighborhoods, then train thousands of passionate local volunteers to go out, set up low-cost canvas tents, and offer – entirely free – 15-minute HIV services to help people stay on top of their health without needing to leave their neighborhood, make an appointment, or spend a penny.

     

    There’s an HIV epidemic in our nation, and especially so in its capital. It’s on us to solve our communities’ problems. Especially those driven by unequal socioeconomic conditions. This is a group of young people’s first stab at getting to do the right thing, and helping people in a big way. Thank you for being here.

  • Highlights
