  2. A quality-trained Health Educator will administer a Free HIV Test by first cleaning, poking your finger with a lancet, and collecting a small blood sample.

  3. The Health Educator will add your blood sample to the test solution, which searches for HIV antibodies in your blood.

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.
