Getting an HIV test is the only way to know if you have HIV.    Knowing whether you are HIV+ or HIV- will help you make better decisions about sex, drug use and health care.

People with HIV who know they are infected can get treatment, and effective treatment keeps HIV+ people healthy and living longer.

Your local health department and the Specialty Care Clinic offers HIV diagnostic testing for low- or no cost.   Call  706.425.2941 to set up an appointment.
