Get Tested at ALFA

Free HIV testing is available daily 9-4:00 at ALFA.

What should I expect when getting tested for HIV?

Testing is the ONLY way to know your status as individuals with HIV are typically asymptomatic. Just because you feel fine doesn’t mean you are. The sooner you know your status, the sooner you get into medical care, the better your prognosis.

HIV testing is a quick procedure. A drop of blood is taken from a finger stick and the results are available in only 20 minutes.

HIV Testing at ALFA is confidential, meaning test results are recorded but no one can give them out without permission of the person tested except as required by state law. This is the only option in North Carolina.

ALFA’s trained Counselor, Testing and Referral staff (CTRs) are available to assist you Monday through Friday from 9am to 4:00 pm. No identification is required to be tested. You will be given a simple demographic form to fill out along with a risk assessment to assist us in identifying your specific counseling needs for prevention and protection.
