Free HIV and Hepatitis C Testing

Testing
WNCAP provides free and confidential rapid HIV and Hepatitis C testing by appointment for individuals. Testing is available at the Asheville and Shelby offices, Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. WNCAP also provides HIV and Hepatitis C testing at a variety of venues in the community. WNCAP seeks to reach all community members to ensure access to free confidential HIV and Hepatitis C testing services. By bringing testing into the community, services can be offered to groups in which HIV and other STDs have been under-diagnosed. WNCAP has hosted free HIV and Hepatitis C testing events at homeless support agencies, health fairs, substance abuse clinics, community centers, churches, colleges, and migrant camps.  If you are interesting in hosting an event in Western North Carolina, please contact Michael Harney for more information at wncap@wncap.org or (828) 252-7489.

More about the test

WNCAP uses the OraQuick Advance Rapid HIV ½ Antibody Test and the OraQuick Rapid Hepatitis C Test. This screening tool provides results in 20 minutes, enabling people to learn their status in a single visit and allows people who have a reactive test result to be connected to care immediately.

North Carolina does not allow anonymous HIV testing only confidential HIV testing. Confidential testing means a name is associated with the test. All information is held in strict confidence and is not released to anyone not associated with the testing process.
