HIV Counselling And Testing Sites

Know Your Status – Get Tested

Trinidad and Tobago has many accomplishments in our response to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Currently the Ministry of Health is executing the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 90-90-90 milestones, which state by the year 2020; diagnosed 90% of all HIV-positive persons, provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) for 90% of those diagnosed, and achieve viral suppression for 90% of those treated. We promote the Undetectable= Untransmittable (U=U) messaging that indicates someone with an undetectable HIV viral load on HIV treatment (ART) cannot transmit HIV. In keeping with this momentum, the Ministry of Health would like to remind citizens to refrain from engaging in risky sexual behaviour that would put one at risk of becoming HIV infected. Sexual and reproductive health involves making safe choices to protect oneself and your partner every day. Taking an HIV test is one of the safe choices a person can make. Despite this reality, there are a number of nationals who have never taken the HIV test to date. The sooner a person knows his/her status, the sooner he can access treatment (if found to be positive) thus increasing the chance of preventing other health conditions from developing.

So remember:

  • Regardless of whom a person is or what he does, all are welcome to access the HIV test free from discrimination. Confidential service is offered, as well as pre and post counselling (before and after the test) to reduce risk if a person is negative, and offer support and referral to treatment if a person is positive.
  • The Ministry of Health offers free same-day HIV testing at sixty three (63) sites collectively nationwide five days a week, twelve months a year.
  • Condoms are available at all testing sites.
  • With advances in HIV rapid testing technology, it takes just one drop of blood to determine a person’s HIV status and results are given in as little as 20 minutes.
  • Upon receiving the results of the test, whether negative or positive, standard follow up measures including counselling is offered at all testing sites.
