February 7th is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
National HIV Testing Day was June 27.
National Testing Day was a huge success! The Center tested people at our office and at various locations throughout the community throughout the weekend. You can see WDBJ 7 coverage of the weekend by clicking here.
The mission of the Drop-In Center is to provide access to information/education, resources and services in the prevention of HIV/STDs; to offer compassionate support services for persons affected by HIV/AIDS; and to support the groundwork for community building projects in a safe and confidential environment.
We provide free, confidential oral HIV testing and oral rapid HIV screening by trained staff through use of the OraSure and OraQuick tests. The OraSure and OraQuick tests require no needles or blood and are highly accurate. The OraQuick rapid HIV antibody test can provide preliminary results in 20 minutes. There is no appointment necessary to be tested.
We provide a variety of community building and educational programs. Staff is available to come to your agency or facility to provide free prevention/education services and confidential HIV testing. For more information about The Drop-In Center and the services it provides, please see the menu to the right.
We have recently started testing for hepatitis C (HCV) as well. This test is a rapid test done with a small sample of blood. The test takes about 20 minutes and can be done while you get your HIV test. For a great recent article about HCV risk, click here.
