All testing and counseling services are free, confidential, and do not require clients to bring identification documents.  Clients do not need to be patients at Martha Eliot Health Center.   Project Protection serves a diverse community of all ages.  Our staff speaks English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.  An interpreter is also available for other languages.
