HIV testing can be scary but know that you're not alone. PPMM health care providers are here to provide you with the highest level of care, regardless of income. Our patients share their experiences receiving HIV testing and other services. Read their stories below.

PPMM Storyteller Denise from Capitola, shares her story.

There were several times throughout my adult life when I had gaps in medical coverage, and Planned Parenthood was a place where I could go for quality medical care.

In the work I do today, we support women, children, and families to be healthy, and we reach out to Planned Parenthood because they are the leader in the most up-to-date health information and are  always willing to support community partners.

Planned Parenthood has helped me with general health needs and, as a young adult, helped me to access HIV testing. It is a valuable asset to any community, and we will fight like hell to preserve these resources for future generations!

PPMM Storyteller Tracy from San Jose, shares her story.

I used Planned Parenthood services when I was in high school and needed birth control. I also trusted them when it was time to take an HIV test. This organization is one I can trust for information and care. I’m glad I’m in a position now where I can contribute financially and, hopefully, with my time.
