PrEP - Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis  

What is PrEP? PrEP is a medication that can help prevent you from contracting HIV if you are exposed to the virus. If you are at risk of HIV exposure, taking PrEP as prescribed can reduce your chances of getting HIV by up to 99% for sexual encounters and 74% for injection drug use.

If you think PrEP is the right step for you contact the Calhoun County Public Health Department today!

This section answers some of the most common questions about PrEP. You can also download materials to share or watch videos on the benefits of PrEP.

nPEP - stands for non-occupational Post Exposure Prophylaxis.  As the term suggests, the goal of nPEP is to prevent HIV infection after you have been exposed to the virus.
If you think nPEP is the right step for you contact the Calhoun County Public Health Department today!

Hep C Testing and Treatment
CDC now recommends one-time hepatitis C testing of all adults (18 years and older) and all pregnant women during every pregnancy. CDC continues to recommend people with risk factors, including people who inject drugs, be tested regularly.
Calhoun County Public Health Department offers Hep C testing at both our Albion and Battle Creek Health Departments call to learn more 
Albion - 517-629-9434
Battle Creek - 269-969-6363

Free condoms are available at all CCPHD offices and clinic locations. 

Correctly using condoms and other barriers (like female condoms and dental dams), every time, can reduce (though not eliminate) the risk of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and viral hepatitis. Using condoms correctly, every time, can also help prevent pregnancy.
