Why do I have to be 17 or older? OraQuick’s in-home HIV test requires participants to be 17 or older. If you are under 17 most states including Georgia do not require parental consent to get tested for HIV or seek treatment.

Why should I get tested? The CDC reports approximately 1 in 7 people living with HIV in the United States are unaware and 1 in 51 people in Georgia will be diagnosed with HIV in their life time. The only way to know for sure if you have HIV is to get tested. The virus often has no symptoms and the longer it is left untreated, the more damage it can do to your immune system and to your health. People receiving proper treatment for their diagnoses can achieve viral suppression.
What if my result comes back positive? You should make an appointment with your doctor to participant in a confirmatory test. If that test is positive as well your doctor will help establish a plan for further care. For further information about HIV and the OraQuick in-home HIV test please visit www.OraQuick.com/FAQs
