Coachella Valley residents are twice as likely to be exposed to HIV than the average US city. If you're sexually active, get tested. It's fast, free & confidential. You don't even need insurance!
The CDC recommends that you get tested at least once in your lifetime. If you're sexually active, it's best to get tested at least 1x per year AND if you've engaged in high risk sexual activity (giving or receiving anal sex, or receiving vaginal sex) it's recommended to get tested as regularly as every 3-6 months.

- HIV Testing: If you test positive for HIV, there are many actions you can take to prevent passing it to others. The most important is taking medicines to treat HIV (called antiretroviral therapy, or ART) the right way, every day. They can keep you healthy for many years and greatly reduce your chance of transmitting HIV to your partners. See treatment options.
- STD Testing: Getting an STD is not the end! Many STDs are curable and all are treatable. If either you or your partner is infected with an STD that can be cured, both of you need to start treatment immediately to avoid getting re-infected.
