ASC’s HIV testing program, ProTest, offers a sensible alternative to traditional HIV testing. By providing preliminary results in as little as 15 minutes, our staff can connect those who test positive with treatment options up to two weeks sooner than traditional HIV testing.
Statistics show that those who know their HIV status are more likely to take precautions to prevent transmitting HIV to others. Statistics also show that many people who are tested with traditional methods do not return for their results, which is why providing same-visit results is imperative.
The testing process is simple. A small blood sample is collected through a finger stick, much like that of a glucose test. Each client who is tested goes through a risk screening and post-test counseling.
And best of all, the test is FREE!
