Welcome to the MISTER Center!
MISTER: Men's Information Services: Testing*Empowerment*Resources
is one of several programs offered at Positive Impact Health Centers. While the majority of services are focused on the needs of gay and bisexual men due to the nature of funding that supports MISTER and the mission of the MISTER program, women and straight men may also access many of the services offered at MISTER, including access to no-cost HIV testing, fee-for-service STI screenings and treatment, information on local resources, and linkage to HIV medical care for HIV-positive persons.
A variety of FREE programs and services are offered. Check out the links on this page for more information about HIV testing, STI screening, CLEAR counseling, RAPP and other MISTER services..
The MISTER Center is one of the most popular spots for getting a no-cost rapid HIV test in metro Atlanta, conducting over 6500 HIV tests annually! Have you had your test lately? If you are sexually active the CDC recommends testing every 6 to 12 months; and if you are a gay or bisexual man sexually active with more than one sex partner testing every 3 months is recommended.
Take control of your life -- take the test!
