We provide FREE HIV and Hepatitis C Testing.
You will get your test results in just 20 minutes and testing is confidential.
The Alere Determine Test (a finger stick whole blood test) is the first FDA approved rapid point-of-care test that detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and free HIV-1 p24 antigen. This 4th generation test has the ability to identify HIV earlier than 2nd and 3rd generation antibody-only tests.
It enables health care providers to diagnose HIV infection earlier allowing individuals to seek medical care sooner.
Hepatitis C Testing
Hepatitis C is a curable disease caused by a virus that infects the liver. The virus, called hepatitis C virus (HCV), can cause lifelong infection, fibrosis (mild to moderate liver scarring), cirrhosis (serious liver scarring), liver cancer, liver failure, and death.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or prEP is a medication that an HIV negative person can take to prevent HIV infection. The medication is called Truvada (Tenofovir and Emtricitabine) and if taken once a day, it can reduce the risk of HIV infection from sex by more than 90% and from injection drug use by more than 70%. Most health insurance companies cover Truvada including Medi-Cal and Medicare. Patients may need to pay a copay for the medication and may be eligible for co-pay assistance.
