Confidential vs. Anonymous HIV testing; what is the difference, and what does your State allow?

HIV testing may be confidential or anonymous. With confidential testing, a person’s name is recorded with their test result. With anonymous testing, no name is used, and you are identified as a number.  All states offer confidential testing but not all offer anonymous testing. As of April 2008, 11 states offered only confidential testing.   Take a look below to see what your state offers and log onto to find a free testing location nearest you, or
