“They will receive an HIV Test,” Miller said. “Which is a very simple test now, it’s just a rapid 15 minute test and they’ll get the results the same day in 15 minutes, and it’s just a finger prick, and not only will they receive an HIV test, they’ll receive prevention information on more than HIV, on STD’s, Hep-C and the resources that are available for them.”
