Protect Yourself, Protect Your Community

 

An HIV diagnosis doesn’t have to stop you from living a long and healthy life. With the proper treatment and care, you can live as long as someone who doesn’t have HIV.

 

The best way to fight HIV is to know your status. AIDS Outreach offers free rapid HIV and Syphilis testing to anyone in Gallatin, Park and Madison Counties.

 

For those who are HIV+, treatment should begin as soon as possible. We’ll help connect you with a healthcare provider, assist you in finding financial resources, and offer an emotional support system for you and your family or caregiver.

 

You don’t have to manage HIV on your own, we’re here for you.

Testing

Testing is easy and it’s a short wait to get your results. A rapid HIV Screening Test is done by a slight prick on your finger, and the results are ready in 15 minutes.

At AIDS Outreach, you are not required to give your name when you get tested. Protecting your confidentiality is enforced at all testing sites. The test is low cost or even free in many places in Montana.

If your test is reactive, we will work with you to get confirmatory testing (a blood draw.) This test is confidential, but not anonymous. There are chances of a false positive. If your test is not reactive and it has been longer than three months since your possible exposure to HIV, generally you can feel confident that you have not contracted the virus.

During Testing

Below are standard questions you will be asked during your first testing appointment. You do not need to provide your name, address or phone number, simply your year of birth and zip code.
