Step 1: Let's talk.

An Alliance counselor will address your emotional needs and concerns, while also providing the lowdown on HIV/AIDS transmission and tips for prevention.

Step 2: Get the test.

The Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo is a rapid point-of-care test that determines the presence of HIV antibodies or antigen. It uses a small, needle finger stick to provide clear, accurate results in just 20 minutes.

Step 3: Discuss the results. 

Based on your test report, your Alliance counselor will discuss the appropriate prevention and/or care plan options.
