Who We Are
Confidential testing for HIV is available at anonymous and confidential test sites throughout Virginia. The test detects the virus that can lead to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or AIDS. Early detection of HIV and use of medical services delays the onset of AIDS. Contact your local health department for times and appointments.
The Virginia HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis Hotline provides statewide toll-free lines: call 800-533-4148. The lines are staffed by trained counselors to answer questions and provide crisis intervention, referrals, and written educational materials regarding Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), HIV/AIDS, and Viral Hepatitis. The hotlines are available 8:00am - 5:00 pm, Monday - Friday.
The Virginia AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides medication for the treatment of HIV/AIDS to individuals without insurance coverage or third party benefits for ADAP medications. The individual must also meet financial eligibility requirements as established by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). The program is open to pregnant women and children.
Contact your local health department for more information.
