You will receive results to your HIV test within minutes time and be able to receive a hard copy of your current HIV status.

    Project INK also offers testing for the following sexually transmitted infections (STI): syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea. Syphilis tests are conducted through a blood draw by one of our certified phlebotomists on staff. Chlaymdia/Gonorrhea tests are conducted through urine specimens.

    Chlamydia/Gonorrhea and syphilis tests are sent to Columbus Public Health for analyzing of specimens. Columbus Public Health will then be in contact directly with individual clients about their results. “No news is good news”, Columbus Public Health will only contact client if a test comes back reactive.
