Getting Tested

HIV tests are free and available at all county Health Departments. Free HIV testing is available by appointment only.

Appointments may be scheduled at your local health department or by texting or calling 706.510.8342 or 706-510-9036.


We offer confidential HIV testing for partners and spouses of our clients at the Specialty Care Clinic. To ensure that an individual can be tested we strongly encourage individuals to call and make an appointment, as walk-ins cannot always be accommodated.

Appointments for testing are typically available:

  • Monday – Thursday          9 am – 3 pm
  • Friday                                   9 am – 11 am

Make sure you bring a form of photo identification with you to your testing appointment.


Which test do we use? 

We now use INSTI tests to check for HIV-1 and HIV-2.  The INSTI  is quick, easy and results take 60 seconds.
