HIV Information

HIV antibody testing is available free of charge at all HIV test sites in North Dakota. Testing is sponsored by the North Dakota Department of Health. The HIV antibody test detects the presence of antibodies to the HIV virus by using a simple oral swab or blood test. This is not a test for AIDS. The test does not tell if you have AIDS; it does show if you have been infected with the virus which can cause AIDS.

Who should consider testing?

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you could be infected with HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Have you ever had unprotected sex (anal, vaginal, or oral) with a man or woman who:

  • You know was infected with HIV?
  • Injects or has injected drugs?
  • Shared needles with someone who was infected?
  • Had sex with someone who shared needles?
  • Had multiple sex partners?
  • You normally wouldn't have sex with?
  • Have you used needles or syringes that were used by anyone before you?
  • Have you ever given or received sex for drugs or money?
  • Did you or any of your partners:
    Receive treatment for hemophilia from 1978 through 1985?
    Have a blood transfusion or organ transplant from 1978 through 1985?
