The specter of HIV/AIDS continues to haunt global, national, and local healthcare, with dozens of new cases diagnosed in the Portland-metro area every year. Standard HIV testing can carry a societal stigma and often requires a wait of seven days before results are available, causing many to delay or forego testing. Today's G-Team deal provides an alternative avenue to HIV testing and awareness: for a $30 donation, you get an HIV rapid test from the Cascade AIDS Project (CAP). Though each HIV rapid test costs CAP $80 to purchase, the organization typically asks patients for a $50 suggested donation and provides testing to everyone who comes in, whatever their ability to pay.
The Cascade AIDS Project is dedicated to educating citizens on the dangers of HIV/AIDS, helping prevent new infections, and supporting and empowering those living with the disease and its stigma. To help stem the spread of HIV/AIDS and lend help to those who may have the disease, CAP provides quick and private testing for individuals seeking to know their HIV statuses. Portland citizens of any gender and sexual orientation can undertake an HIV rapid test—a mouth-swab or finger-prick exam that confidentially reveals the individual's HIV status in about 30 minutes. While waiting for the test results, patients receive risk counseling and education to reduce the risk of future infection.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
