KNOW YOUR STATUS
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all Americans between the ages of 13-64 get tested for HIV as part of routine health care. More frequent testing is recommended for people of higher risk, including gay and bisexual men for which testing is suggested every 3 to 6 months given the higher prevalence.
What happens when I get tested?
Project: H.O.T. utilizes the INSTI Rapid HIV Test which provides results in 60 seconds.
Before testing we will talk with you about your risks and how to reduce them with the use of condoms as well as lubrication.
After testing, we will continue to work with you and refer you to additional services and treatment if needed. Testing is easy, free and confidential.
