Testing Together provides an opportunity for 2 or more individuals who are (or plan to be) in a sexual relationship with each other to be tested for HIV and receive results together.

Testing Together is a good fit for partners who agree to the following conditions:

  • Partners agree to discuss HIV risk issues and concerns together;
  • Partners are willing to receive results together;
  • Partners commit to keeping shared information private and confidential;
  • Decisions about revealing HIV status are made together.

A trained HIV testing counselor leads the discussion about present and future behavior and options for managing test results.
