Family Planning Clinics are offered by health departments throughout the state. These clinics provide counseling and condom distribution to women of childbearing age and sexually active men. Clients may recieve referrals to family planning and health specialists as necessary, local counseling and testing sites and community-based organizations.
Planned Parenthood has provided services to a large portion of Kentucky for nearly 70 years. Services include distribution of condoms and prevention literature, programs on AIDS 101 and safer sex and peer education for teens and youth. Planned Parenthood contracts with local health departments to provide free, confidential HIV testing for women by appointment. In addition, health department staff in Lexington provides onsite HIV testing at Planned Parenthood on a walk‑in basis one day each week. Males have been referred to other agencies in the past, but the agency is increasing its focus on young men. Most clients served are females younger than 19 through age 39.
