In observation of AIDS Awareness Month, Health Services is offering FREE HIV testing through December 19 (or until supplies run out). Testing will be performed using the new INSTI® HIV test which is the world’s fastest HIV test providing results in as little as 60 seconds. In addition to being the fastest test in the world, INSTI® HIV is over 99% accurate and the most sensitive rapid antibody test currently on the point of care market—meaning it can detect HIV earlier than all other tests of its kind. The test uses a drop of finger stick blood which is proven to be more accurate than oral fluid.
The CDC recommends routine HIV screening for all Americans aged 15 to 65 – not just those deemed to be “at risk.” It is estimated that over 1.1 million people are HIV positive in America and 1 in 6 don’t know they are infected. The first step is taking the test.
