PROTECT YOURSELF.
protect your community.

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) continue to be a major problem across the United States, including in Rhode Island.

The goal of the DoItRIght program is to provide information about HIV and other STIs so that all can protect themselves against STI transmission.

Many people who have HIV or other STIs don’t know it and might not have any symptoms. Many STIs can be cured with antibiotics, and if found early, and treated, people diagnosed with HIV can live long healthy lives. If untreated, HIV and other STIs can cause major health problems.

The DoItRIght program is sponsored by The Center for HIV and STI Prevention at The Miriam Hospital.
