A quality-trained Health Educator will administer a Free HIV Test by first cleaning, then poking your finger with a lancet, and collecting a small sample of blood.
The Health Educator will add your blood sample to the test solution, which searches for HIV antibodies in your blood.
The Health Educator will collect some personal information from you and provide a personalized Risk Reduction Strategy also known as Safer Sex Practices.
Screening results will be available within 15 minutes.
If your screening result is Non-Reactive (HIV-Negative), the Health Educator will provide you with safer sex literature and free condoms. Your Health Educator will also advise you on when to return for your next screening.
If your screening result is Reactive (HIV-Positive), the Health Educator will administer an additional Confirmatory HIV Test by drawing blood from your vein and then submit it to the laboratory for further examination. In the interim, the Health Educator and a Linkage Team Member will assist you with getting connected to resources relative to an HIV-Positive screening result, including additional support you may need.
