HIV testing
Getting tested for HIV and knowing your status are some of the most important things you can do to keep yourself healthy. The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommends HIV screening for all people ages 15 to 65, as well as younger adolescence and older adults who are at an increased risk for HIV Infection.

If you participate in high risk behaviors*, it is recommend that you test every 3 months.
