Free HIV testing locations in the Carolinas

Regular testing among vulnerable populations is a key component in the fight against HIV/AIDS

Back to Life, Positively 2017 Index…

Approximately half of the population has never been tested for HIV, and around 13 percent of those currently infected are estimated as being unaware of their status, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In addition, the CDC states that of the thousands of new HIV diagnoses every year, many likely transmitted by those unaware that they are HIV-positive.

There are a number of free HIV testing sites across North Carolina and South Carolina. Many also offer testing for other STDs, as well as vaccines for hepatitis and HPV. Call for information on days, times and for information on all the services they offer. You can also visit gettested.cdc.gov to search for more testing sites in your area.
