10 Year Anniversary

Building Bridges Ending the HIV Epidemic

On September 20, 2019, as we celebrate 10 years of fight HIV. NovaSalud invites you to join us in support of ending the HIV epidemic and raising awareness of HIV/AIDS in our community.

NovaSalud is one of the state’s newest non-profit community-based health organizations.  We are regionally recognized for our role in serving people and the community. Over the last 10 years, we have earned ongoing support and respect from state and local governments in the Northern Virginia area and from national and local corporations.

NovaSalud has collaborated with the Virginia Department of Health since 2012 to provide a significant array of HIV prevention programs and HIV counseling and testing to those residing in Northern Virginia.  In addition, NovaSalud has a history with the local Health Departments, which allowed us the opportunity to increase HIV/AIDS awareness throughout the Northern Virginia region.  More recently, NovaSalud has developed successful collaborations with more than 45 organizations in Northern Virginia, which allows us the opportunity to provide specific, culturally appropriate prevention education programming, HIV counseling and testing, and referrals to our community.

Our success in reaching communities at highest-risk for HIV is demonstrated in our success in finding HIV positive individuals and linkage or re-engaging them in supportive HIV care and treatment. Inc, NovaSalud’s inception, we have conducted over 10,521 HIV tests and 2,048 HCV tests. We maintained 1.5% positive rate for HIV and 7% positive rate for HCV. We have reached more than 75,000 members of Northern Virginia with our messages and services of HIV/STD and prevention and condoms distribution.

Our doors are open for all who are interested in the services we offer, the programs we run, and the community we build to break the stigma and fight HIV.
