Free, rapid and confidential HIV testing
Testing can be provided upon request to anyone over 14 years of age. They are offered on a walk-in or appointment basis in the Carrboro clinic on Wednesdays, from 6:00-9:30pm, and results are provided in about 30 minutes using the OraQuick system. Trained student counselors provide education, prevention, and risk reduction information before and after HIV testing. Walk-ins are welcome!
We also offer testing and counseling in Durham, every Monday, from 5:30pm until 8:00pm at the Lincoln Community Health Center.

Things everyone should know about HIV and AIDS:
• HIV is the virus that causes AIDS and often has no symptoms. Having a test done is the best way to find out if you have HIV. If your test does come back positive, that does not mean you have AIDS.
• There are many medicines available to help people with HIV lead productive, healthy lives although there is still no cure for AIDS.
• HIV can be transmitted through blood, vaginal fluid or semen, breast milk and the sharing of needles.
• Not sharing needles and using a condom every time you have sex are the best ways to protect yourself from contracting HIV.
