In collaboration with the Southwest Louisiana Area Health Education Center (SWLAHEC), SLAC provides free and confidential HIV testing to members of the community. Cerrtified testers versed in the latest methods administer the tests.
Beginning September 1, 2015, our in-house HIV testing will use the Alere Determine Combo, which provides the ability to identify HIV sooner than conventional rapid tests. This test detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 antigen, making it possible to detect HIV within 12-26 days after infection.
The Alere Determine Combo test is a finger prick test where results are available within 20 minutes.
Please contact us to set up an appointment if you would like to get tested.
