When someone gets HIV, the body”s immune system makes antibodies to try to fight the infection. Most HIV tests available today test for HIV antibodies. If HIV antibodies are present, it means that a person is infected with HIV. A rapid HIV test using blood will be performed. The rapid HIV test being done at the Houston Hits Home testing events will require a blood sample to be drawn. Your test results will be available the same day you test.
The test is looking for presence of Treponema pallidum, the bacterium that causes syphilis. Syphilis is an infectious disease that is most often spread by sexual contact, such as through direct contact with a syphilis sore (chancre). It is easily treated but can cause severe health problems if left untreated. The syphilis test being done at the Houston Hits Home testing events will require a blood sample to be drawn. Your test results will be available the same day you test.
Hepatitis C tests are used to detect and diagnose an infection and/or to monitor the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV). Tests are used to detect the condition if a person:
Has been exposed to someone with HCV
Participates in high risk behaviors such as injecting street drugs
Born between 1945 – 1965
Most people newly infected with HCV have no symptoms or ones that are so mild that they rarely prompt a person to visit a doctor and get tested for HCV. However, about 10-20% of people may experience symptoms such as fatigue, pain in the abdominal area, decreased appetite, and jaundice and may be tested for HCV. Your test results will be available the same day you test.
