Thrive Health Connection’s Prevention Services engages in a variety of activities designed to prevent the further spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). To accomplish this goal we offer HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhea testing, condom distribution, and educational interventions with both HIV-positive and HIV-negative individuals.
Thrive Health Connection offers free HIV and STI testing during walk-in testing hours, by appointment, and at outreach testing events. Our rapid HIV testing services allow you to receive your HIV test results during your visit with us. Chlamydia and gonorrhea testing require lab processing and results are generally available within two weeks.
Walk-in testing hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. Thrive Health Connection is located at 5008 Prospect Avenue Kansas City, MO 64130.
Visit Thrive Health Connection any time during business hours for free condoms, personal lubricant and other safer sex materials. We also distribute condoms at various locations around the Kansas City metropolitan area.
CLEAR (Choosing Life, Empowerment, Action, Results!) is a program designed to help people living with HIV reduce their risk of transmitting HIV to their partners. Customers meet with trained prevention specialists one-on-one for six one-hour sessions either at Thrive Health Connection or in a private location.
Community Presentations on HIV and STI prevention are available upon request. Thrive Health Connection is frequently asked to present in a variety of locations including schools, colleges/universities, professional conferences, and at various community organizations.
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is one of the newest HIV prevention tools available. Thrive Health Connection staff provide resources, education and referrals for PrEP.
