HIV Testing @ HEO

Know your status!

HIV Testing

Free, rapid HIV antibody testing is conducted weekly by an HIV Testing Counselor certified through Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. We use the INSTI Rapid HIV1/HIV2 antibody test, which requires a droplet of blood via finger stick and delivers results in 1 minute.

Testing Schedule: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11am-1 pm

All Tuesdays at the Queer Resource Center
All Wednesdays at HEO
