Getting Tested for HIV: Testing Sites in Minnesota

Early diagnosis of HIV infection is critical for early treatment and to benefit from the latest medical advances. Persons interested in obtaining an HIV antibody test can be tested at their doctor's office or at a community-based clinic. Additionally, HIV antibody testing is available at MDH publicly funded HIV testing sites through outreach and testing projects targeted to persons at high risk of HIV infection. Look for your closest testing site.

All pregnant women should be tested for HIV infection because treatment is available that substantially reduces the risk of mother-to-child (perinatal) HIV transmission.
