The mission of the Mobile Outreach Unit is to provide HIV/STI screening services within hard to reach and high-risk communities.
The South Carolina HIV/AIDS Council maintains a community outreach Mobile Unit. This multi-purpose unit is equipped with a CLIA waived laboratory, and has the ability to administer screenings in a confidential setting. The Mobile Unit staff members are certified Phlebotomist trained to conduct blood draws when needed. The Mobile Unit brings to local communities free HIV/STI information, confidential risk reduction counseling, safer sex barriers, incorporating refreshments, music, and raffle prizes – all done in a compassionate manner.
