Where can people find more information about HIV testing?

There are several resources for people interested about the facts of HIV testing.

  • The National HIV and STD Testing Resource site (http://www.hivtest.org) contains answers to frequently asked questions.
  • The CDC web site is also a good source of information: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/testing/. This site also contains information on how to order free HIV/AIDS publications.
  • The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation has a fact sheet available at http://www.kff.org/hivaids/upload/6094-09.pdf. This sheet contains a useful list of states that allow confidential and anonymous testing for HIV.
