HIV/AIDS Awareness and Testing
Locate HIV Testing and Other Services
The HIV Testing Sites and Care Services Locator is a one-stop search tool for consumers looking for HIV/AIDS testing and service providers.
The tool takes advantage of open data from the Department of Health and Human Services agencies such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and Health Resources and Services Administration, along with other federal departments like the Department of Housing and Urban Development, to allow searches across many service provider databases at one time. Results are displayed on a dynamic map, marking each service provider near the location you searched. You can view the provider's contact information, which services they provide,and get directions to the provider's location.
How it works
- If you know the five-digit zip code of the area where you are, you may get better results. If you don't, you can just use the nearest city and state, like Baltimore or San Diego.
- You can click on the markers on the map to get more information about each location.
- You can also expand the list on the right-hand side of the screen to see the names of all the locations. Clicking a name will also provide more information.
- To get directions to a service provider's location, you can enter the specific address for where you'd like to start from, and directions will be displayed.
