ASU Health Services provides many services for the LGBTQIA+ community at ASU.  ASU medical providers and support staff strive to be responsive to the needs of all members of the university community.

Our goal is to provide inclusive services that meet both the general healthcare needs of the LGBTQIA+ community as well as unique services for LGBTQIA+ persons.  The list below illustrates the range of services we provide to support the healthcare needs of LGBTQIA+ persons.  This list does not include all of the services that are available, so if there is a particular area of concern that you wish to address, please feel free to ask any of the medical providers about those issues as well.

  • Routine health care that takes into consideration the unique needs of LGBTQIA+ persons, including vaccinations that are particularly important for protecting the long-term health of LGBTQIA+ persons.
  • Routine Sexually Transmitted Infection testing and treatment.  Testing for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and other infections is available.  You can obtain such testing either after meeting with one of our medical providers or through our self-scheduling Sexually Transmitted Infection Clinic run by our highly trained laboratory staff.
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV infection.
  • Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) given within 72 hours of a sexual or drug encounter where you are worried you might have been exposed to HIV.
  • Transgender healthcare for transgender and non-binary persons that includes initiating or continuing gender-affirming hormonal therapy and providing referrals in the community for other gender affirming services such as gender affirming surgeries.
  • Gender affirming gynecologic care for transmen and non-binary persons taking masculinizing hormones.
  • Mental Health referrals to mental health professionals on and off-campus who are informed and sensitive to the unique needs of LGBTQIA+ persons.
