Testing is fast, free, confidential, and can be done at home

Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to keep you and your partner(s) healthy.


The sooner you know your status, the faster you can take action. If you do not have HIV, you can choose prevention strategies that work for you. If you test positive, you can get on treatment. HIV treatment not only allows you access to a long, healthy life but also helps to prevent transmission of HIV to others.


If you test POSITIVE, you can take medicine to treat HIV. Taking HIV medicine as prescribed can make the amount of HIV in your blood very low - so low that a test can't detect it. This is the best thing you can do to stay healthy. If the HIV remains undetectable, you have effectively NO RISK of transmitting HIV to an HIV-negative partner through sex.


If you test NEGATIVE for HIV, there are more HIV prevention tools available today than ever before. To learn more about those options, visit CDC.gov/StopHIVTogether/prevention


The CDC recommends that everyone aged 13-64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine healthcare. If you are sexually active, you should talk to a health provider about how often you should get tested for HIV. A reasonable approach may include getting tested at least once a year.
