Empowering Communities Through HIV Prevention: Building a Safer, Healthier Future

At the AIDS Information Centre (AIC), we are dedicated to providing comprehensive HIV Testing Services (HTS) that prioritize confidentiality, compassion, and empowerment. Our commitment stems from a deep understanding of the critical role early detection plays in curbing the spread of HIV/AIDS and promoting individual health and well-being.

Why HIV Testing Services Matter

HIV Testing Services are the cornerstone of HIV prevention, treatment, and care efforts. They serve as a gateway to essential services such as antiretroviral therapy (ART), prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) programs, and psychosocial support. By knowing one's HIV status, individuals can make informed decisions about their health, access timely treatment, and adopt preventive measures to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Our Approach to HIV Testing Services

Key Features of our HIV Testing Services:

At AIC, we recognize that stigma, fear, and misconceptions often deter individuals from seeking HIV testing. Therefore, we strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where everyone feels respected, supported, and empowered throughout the testing process.

Confidentiality

We uphold strict confidentiality standards to ensure the privacy and dignity of all clients. Our trained counselors offer non-judgmental support and guidance, respecting each individual's right to privacy.

Accessibility

We believe that HIV testing should be accessible to all, regardless of socioeconomic status or geographical location. That's why we offer a range of testing options, including facility-based testing, mobile testing units, and community outreach initiatives.

Rapid Testing

We utilize state-of-the-art rapid testing technologies to deliver timely results, often within minutes. Rapid testing reduces the anxiety associated with waiting for results and enables swift linkage to care for those who test positive.

Pre- and Post-Test Counseling

Our comprehensive counseling services encompass pre-test counseling to address any concerns or questions individuals may have before testing, as well as post-test counseling to provide support, education, and referrals based on test results.

Holistic Support

Beyond testing, we offer holistic support services that address the broader needs of individuals living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. This includes linkage to treatment and care services, psychosocial support, support groups, and referrals to partner organizations for additional assistance.
