An HIV test is the only way to know if you have HIV. Free and low-cost tests are available throughout Hudson County, and you do not need a parent or guardian’s consent to get tested. HIV is a manageable health condition, and people living with HIV can live long healthy lives. Unfortunately, too many people don’t know their status because of a lack of access and awareness to testing. For this reason, we’ve roundup up all of the places to get an HIV test in Hudson County.

If left untreated, HIV is a virus that damages the immune system and can progress to AIDS, which can be fatal. When untreated, HIV can be transmitted sexually or by sharing needles for drugs. According to UNAIDS, there were 1.5 million new transmissions of HIV in 2020. The first reported case of HIV was on June 5, 1981, according to the CDC.

If you test negative, ask your doctor about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). By taking PrEP every day, you cannot acquire HIV. If you test positive, consult your doctor about starting HIV treatments right away. With treatment, you can become undetectable. Undetectable means that you won’t transmit the virus sexually and you can live a normal, healthy life.

Thank you to the Hudson Pride Center for helping us connect with these HIV testing providers.
