Eligibility Criteria


Persons eligible for HIV screening are:

  • 13 years of age or older

    • If younger than 18 years of age, should be emancipated minor or have consent given by their legal representative

    • 18 years and over and must be able to provide written consent

  • Available for follow-up for at least two weeks after enrollment




The Early Test Program


The Early Test is specialized testing for HIV infection as early as one week after exposure. It consists of a fingerstick rapid HIV antibody test with results available in one minute. If your rapid test result is negative, you will have blood taken from your arm for a free viral load (a test that looks for HIV virus in your blood). In two weeks, simply log into our automated results system to get your negative results. If HIV virus is found in your blood, we will contact you ASAP.
This type of test is not typically offered at HIV testing sites and health insurance does not usually cover viral load tests for HIV screening. Your confidentiality is assured. While we do ask for some personal information (such as your name), your results will not be given to anyone else without your written permission.
