STD & HIV Testing


Know Your Status

Confidential Services: All health services that we provide are 100% confidential. Our expert team of licensed nurses and counselors knows that everyone gets sick now and then. We treat STD and HIV patients no differently than we would treat someone who has a cold.

STD and HIV Care & Treatment

Most STDs can be cleared up easily with antibiotics, which you can receive from your nearest health department. However, if you’re diagnosed with an STD that currently has no cure, we will provide counseling and ongoing treatment to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

We also provide top-quality HIV care at the HOPE Center, a Ryan White-funded clinic that specializes in connecting HIV-positive individuals with HIV medical care.

STD Testing

We provide STD testing for a variety of sexually transmitted diseases, including:

Testing can be as simple as a visual inspection by a licensed nurse, or may require a urine or blood sample. Test results are provided within seven days, and treatment can begin immediately thereafter.

HIV Testing

HIV is a virus that slowly weakens your cells from fighting off infections. 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.

Stay healthy by checking your HIV status. HIV tests are quick and easy, usually requiring nothing more than a quick prick of the finger for a small blood sample. Test results are often provided before you leave the facility, and we can connect you with any necessary care that same day.

Request Condoms

Condoms are 98% effective at protecting against most STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Free condoms and at-home HIV test kits are available (while supplies last) to be mailed directly, and discreetly, to the home or desired address of any person over the age of 16 living in the 13 counites of North Central Health District. The program, called #MixItUpMG, encourages everyone to help prevent the spread of STDs and HIV in our communities.
