HIV Testing Your Way

Since HIV has no immediate symptoms, most people never realize they’ve been infected. In fact, one in eight people with HIV don’t know they have it. The only way to know your status is to get tested. 

Stay healthy by checking your HIV status. HIV tests are quick and easy, usually requiring nothing more than an oral swab or a quick prick of the finger for a small blood sample. Now, there are more options than every to get tested in the way that’s most convenient to you. Take charge of your health and get tested for HIV in a way that works best for you—whether that’s self-testing in your own space or finding a testing site nearby.
