IS HIV TESTING CONFIDENTIAL?

YES!

HIV testing and your status is confidential.

The results of your HIV test cannot be released without your permission to anyone — that includes your employer, family, friends, or partners.

WHAT IF I TEST POSITIVE?

Finding out you are HIV+ can be scary, but with treatment it is easily manageable. You can still live a long and healthy life. In fact, treatment is so effective it can make you undetectable, which means it is almost impossible to pass it to your partners.

WHAT IF I TEST NEGATIVE?

Continue to use condoms and consider taking PrEP — a once a day daily pill that can keep you HIV negative. You should also get tested between 2-4 times a year to be sure you are negative.

THINK YOU’VE BEEN EXPOSED?

If you think you may have been exposed to HIV, PEP is an emergency prevention option that needs to be started no later than 72 hours after an HIV exposure.

The sooner you begin treatment, the better.

You can get PEP at nearest Emergency Department or Health Center #1 (1930 S. Broad Street).
