Know Your Status

HIV testing is now available in person or from the comfort of your home!

If you are sexually active and/or sharing needles, we recommend to get tested for HIV every three months or at least once a year, depending on your risk level. That includes sex without condoms, with multiple partners, and/or with someone of unknown status. We offer testing to anyone who is at least 13 years old.
