Hello and Thank You for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.

It is great to hear that you are considering to get tested for HIV. The most commonly available test is the ELISA antibody blood test. It is highly accurate: 99.8% after 12 weeks from exposure.

There is another test called a Rapid test (you get your results within 5 minutes), which is also an antibody test, with roughly the same accuracy.

Here is a link with testing sites in the lower mainland:

Thank you for your question, please feel free to write back to us at any time.

Best Wishes,

Elyse
