Please be advised that for testing onsite, at GMHC, we use the Alere Determine HIV Rapid Test. The Alere Determine Rapid provides HIV test results in 20 minutes. To obtain a sample for testing, with Alere Determine, a GMHC counselor/phlebotomist will do a finger-stick (prick your finger with a lancet) to obtain a small sample of blood. If you have any questions about the Alere Determine HIV Rapid Test, please call us at (212) 367-1100. All services are confidential.

Outside of New York State, you can call the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National AIDS Hotline. They can answer any questions you might have about HIV and AIDS and direct you to a nearby test site. They are open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. For further information, visit PEP411.
