HIV and Hep C Counseling and Testing

The Commission offers FREE and CONFIDENTIAL HIV rapid testing. Hepatitis C test is also available. You can receive your test results in minutes plus a counseling session. The HIV test is conducted with a simple, oral fluid test, and you don't need to worry about needles or blood (your top and bottom gum is swiped once with a swab and then placed into a vial with developer fluid). This test is reliable and done on site here at the Commission.

Connecting People

"Conectando Gente" Campaign
The "Conectando Gente" (Connecting People) campaign is promoting the HIV and Hepatitis C testing to the friends of those who have been tested already. Anytime someone brings a friend to get the test, the persons receive a $10 Target gift certificate.

The friend or referral doesn't not necessarily need to accompany the person who is getting tested. The result of the test will be informed only to the person who has taken the test. It will be a personal decision if the person who has taken the test wants to share his/her result with the referral.


How Can HIV Testing Help You?
If the test shows that you don't have HIV, you can learn how to stay HIV-free (HIV negative). If the test shows that you do have HIV, you can get medical care right away to help you stay healthy longer and get early treatment for illnesses that may occur.
