Lab-Based HIV Testing

The Tennessee Department of Health provides HIV lab testing in each of its 95 health departments across the state. Lab-based testing can detect HIV more quickly and can be used if a person is receiving both positive and negative results when using rapid HIV tests (a sign of the early stages of HIV). This testing comes with expert support to navigate you to treatment if you get a positive HIV test result. Testing is free at regional health departments and low-cost at metro health departments. Specialized staff can help you leverage a wide range of resources to cover the costs of your care.
