AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) is proud to announce the opening of the ASA Moody Medical Clinic, which held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, September 10. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Council Member Greg Casar, Ross Moody, ASA staff, and members of the board attended, followed by a ribbon cutting and tours of the new facility.

The ASA Moody Medical Clinic is dedicated to serving people both living with HIV and those at high-risk of transmission in a stigma-free and life-affirming environment. Services include HIV care, primary care, same-day PrEP and PEP prescriptions, behavioral health services, and HIV/STI testing and treatment. Additionally, clinical services will be integrated into the existing social and direct assistance programs at ASA in order to reduce barriers to care and other support our community relies on to not only survive, but thrive.

Chief Executive Officer, Paul E. Scott says, “Our new ASA Moody Medical Clinic, working alongside the city and our community partners, will support Austin’s Fast-Track City initiative goals by increasing access to life-affirming care and help Austin get to zero new HIV transmissions.”

ASA’s mission is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. For over 30 years, ASA has responded to the evolving HIV epidemic in Central Texas. We have pioneered new treatments, implemented cutting-edge prevention programs, influenced local decision-makers, and maintained a sustainable approach for the future. We are helping Austin get to zero new HIV infections.
