Risk-Based Testing Vs. Routine Testing

Risk-Based Testing is HIV testing for those who have a higher risk of getting HIV due to unsafe behaviors.

Routine Testing is HIV testing for anyone who wants to be tested for HIV, regardless of risky behaviors. 


What Puts you at higher risk for HIV?

  • Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (anal sex) are at highest risk of acquiring HIV
  • Sharing needles used for injectable drugs 
  • Having unprotected sex with someone who is HIV positive
  • Having unprotected sex with multiple partners with unknown HIV statuses 

Sex is a normal, healthy part of life. It should be fun and pleasurable for you and your partner. But it can also be risky if you or your partner do certain things that could spread disease or cause physical or emotional harm.
