"The North Carolina Non-Traditional Counseling, Testing and Referral Sites (NTS)* program addresses barriers to HIV/STD testing by collaborating with community-based organizations to offer expanded HIV/STD services outside of the traditional public health setting.

NTS projects provide visible alternative HIV/STD services in easily accessible community settings (homeless shelters, substance abuse centers, nightclubs, public housing developments, detention centers and universities) during non-traditional hours (evenings, nights and weekends.) Services offered include:
- HIV prevention counseling and testing,
- Syphilis screenings,
- STD examinations and treatment,
- Blood pressure, TB and pregnancy screenings.

The Edgecombe County Health Department NTS program works with the Edgecombe County Detention Center and Jail Annex to provide HIV & Syphilis testing, counseling and education to inmates who volunteer to be tested. We also offer walk-in HIV & Syphilis Testing on Thursday evenings at the health department from 5-7pm.
To schedule a community education session or to set up a HIV screening, please call 252-641-7511."
