PrEP & Hepatitis C Services

Lending Hands for Life PrEP and Hepatitis C Services

Since 1989, Erie’s Lending Hands for Life (LHL) program has been working to help those living with HIV/AIDS - or those who are at risk – live healthy lives and reduce the number of transmissions in Chicago.

  • We offer a wide range of services — from medical care to emotional support — for individuals who are living with HIV/AIDS or those at risk. A team of community health workers, case managers, and providers are here to make sure you receive the highest quality care for living your healthiest life.
  • We offer injectable and oral PrEP at all of our Erie locations.
    PrEP is a medicine that when taken as prescribed, can greatly reduce your risk of getting HIV from sex and injection drug use. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV when used as prescribed.
  • See down below for our free at-home HIV self-test kits. Test kits are only for those residing in the state of Illinois.
  • We also offer Hepatitis C Treatment Services at most Erie sites.

At Erie Family Health Centers, we believe healthcare is a human right. Erie offers high-quality healthcare regardless of a person’s ability to pay, insurance or immigration status, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
