New Service: Rapid HIV Testing at Douglas County AIDS Project

The Douglas County AIDS Project is happy to announce that as of January we will now offer free rapid HIV testing by appointment.

DCAP is excited to have this opportunity to work very closely with the community to reduce the transmission of HIV in Douglas, Franklin and Jefferson Counties. We look forward to testing more individuals in the next year and expanding our services to more populations in this region.

The Clearview HIV 1/2 test can give you a rapid HIV test result in 15 to 20 minutes. This technology is ideal for those that would like to know their HIV status in a short period of time. The test is very simple to perform and requires a very small sample of blood that is collected by a finger prick.

Individuals that would like to schedule an appointment for rapid testing will need to contact our office and schedule an appointment. Interested persons should plan to schedule 30-45 minutes per appointment.

Please contact DCAP for more information: 843-0040 or visit: www.douglascountyaidsproject.org

Meanwhile, gonorrhea that is immune to the last remaining effective oral antibiotic has been detected in at least nine North American patients, meaning the era of "incurable" gonorrhea could be close. Gonorrhea is the world’s second most common venereal disease, infecting 700,000 Americans each year, and is associated with gay bowel syndrome. Nationally in the U.S., the rate of fluoroquinolone-resistant gonorrhea is currently about 5% in men who have sex with men -- about 12 times higher than among heterosexual men. America’s poor misguided sodomites are about to be victimized by another deadly incurable plague. Who would have thought?
