HIV Testing

Oral Swab HIV Testing Tip

If you are interested in getting a HIV test, you must not have had anything to eat, drink or have chewed gum for at least 15 minutes before testing. You must wait at least 30 minutes prior to testing if you have used any oral care products (i.e. toothpaste, mouthwash).

PrEP Blog from Health Education & Promotion

Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new prevention method for significantly reducing the risk of HIV infection. A person who is HIV-negative takes a pill called Truvada (emitricitabine/tenofovir) once a day. If HIV transmission occurs, PrEP works by making it harder for HIV to multiply in your body and attack your infection-fighting cells (CD4 cells, aka T cells).
