About the Test:

The Alliance uses Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo. Alere Deterimine is a 4th generation test, with the ability to detect HIV earlier than 2nd and 3rd generation antibody-only tests. The Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo test collects blood from a small needle finger stick, this will determine if HIV antibodies or antigen are present. All testing is free and completely confidential.

About The Alliance's Testing Process:

HIV Testing at The Alliance has three main parts:

The first is the pre-test counseling session. The Alliance's Counselor addresses emotional needs and concerns, and provides an overview of HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention.

The second part is the Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo test.

The third part is the post-test results pick-up and counseling. Results are available within twenty minutes of taking the test. The Alliance Counselor will respond to your needs and concerns, discuss risk reduction strategies, and arrange for confirmatory testing, as needed.

Testing Locations and Times:

The Alliance offers free and confidential HIV counseling and testing, in English and Spanish, at our main program office, the Keith Haring  Harlem Center, and CASA Washington Heights Community Center.
