For the love of whatever deity you worship - use a condom. Yes a condom! Use it every time and use it correctly. Did you know that up to 1 out of 4 people who have HIV don't know it? Knowing your HIV status can greatly impact your health. If you know you have HIV, you can begin getting the medical care you need to stay healthy longer. You can also directly impact the health of others by taking steps to keep from infecting your partner(s). If you don't have HIV, it's important to learn what you need to do to keep it that way. Protect yourself and your partner(s)! San Antonio has resources to help with testing and education. Tests are available from the San Antonio AIDS Foundation, other AIDS Service Organizations, most physicians, hospitals, the health department, and health clinics. The San Antonio AIDS Foundation provides HIV tests for FREE. Here is some information regarding their services:
  • Monday – Thursday 8:30am – 4:00pm, Fridays 9:00am -1:00pm
  • Counseling and testing available in Spanish and English
  • SAAF offers both anonymous and confidential testing
  • Oral test using swabbing inside of mouth/Bloodless
  • Test results in 20 minutes
  • Walk-in basis
  • Free HIV testing and counseling
For more information on other HIV testing sites in Texas please visit www.HIVTEST.org or www.211texas.org. But for reals y'all - Use a condom. And get tested. This is your life we are talking about!
