It is the goal of CARS, an initiative of Capacity Builder, Inc., and its partners to eradicate HIV and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) in San Juan County and including the Navajo Nation portion in New Mexico. We are accomplishing this through FREE HIV and STD’s testing along with extensive prevention education that discusses transmission myths, realities, and relationship strategies to protect oneself. With the help of our partner, Lou Go’s Taxi, we offer free transport to and from free HIV and other STD testing sites so that early detection can prevent future transmission in addition to helping HIV positive persons access the latest medical aftercare services to either cure or control the disease. This Capacity Builder Inc.’s crucial initiative with the CARS project involves intense work and dedication which is impacting the health and life expectancy of the community in which we serve.
