HIV Counseling and Testing Sites

TESTING SITES

 The goal of HIV counseling and testing is to assist individuals in assessing their risk and understanding their test results and to help them develop a personalized prevention plan. Counseling includes notifying the patient of the availability of partner counseling and referral services, the benefits of such services, and the confidentiality protections available as part of such services. HIV-infected persons and those at risk for HIV are referred to needed services, including substance abuse treatment, Healthy Start, prevention case management, and medical care.

If you are interested in becoming a Registered Testing Site in Miami-Dade County, please contact the local Early Intervention Consultant, Ms. Sandra Estevez at   (305) 710-5512 or email at Sandra.Estevez@flhealth.gov.     

 

 Our Test Miami Mobile Unit serves the Miami-Dade County community by providing free preventative education and testing such as HIV testing and Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, & Syphilis Screenings.
