HIV Prevention Program
HIV Counseling and Testing
County health departments in Georgia offer HIV counseling and testing (C&T) services:
- HIV antibody testing: Testing routinely done on blood samples. Some sites offer oral testing and/or provide same-day results.
- HIV prevention counseling: Helping individuals address HIV risk reduction.
- Referrals (including access to medical care for persons who test positive).
Please contact your local county health department for additional information.
In addition, certain community partners are funded to provide HIV C&T services. Other agencies/organizations also provide their data to the HIV Unit.
The HIV Unit manages HIV antibody testing data, regardless of test results, conducted in Public Health programs and related agencies. The
HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Section manages data collected through
HIV and AIDS Case Reporting.
The HIV Unit also provides training and other technical assistance for C&T services. Please see
Training and Capacity Building for more information about training offered by the HIV Unit.
