Free HIV/STD Testing

The Integrated Targeted Testing Services (ITTS) program offers free HIV/STD testing to key priority groups in the community in targeted settings. By bringing testing into the community, these services can reach groups in which HIV and other STDs have been under-diagnosed. Infections are under-diagnosed when people do not realize they are at risk for certain infections and diseases.

Below is a list of our upcoming community testing locations where we will be offering free HIV/STD testing, as well as other sexual health supplies:

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system and kills the body’s white-blood cells. There is currently no effective cure, once people get HIV they have it for life. However, with proper medical care and medication, HIV can be controlled. People living with HIV who get effective HIV treatment can live long, healthy lives and protect their partners.

HIV is transmitted typically in five ways:

  1. Blood
  2. Seminal fluids
  3. Rectal fluids
  4. Vaginal fluids
  5. Breast milk

HIV is considered to be one of many different types of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). These diseases are spread through different types of sexual intercourse and if left untreated, can have serious health consequences. Some of the most common STDs and related-illnesses are: bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, genital HPV, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), trichomoniasis, syphilis, and HIV.
