HIV Testing & Prevention Program


General Information


The HIV Testing & Prevention programs offer strategic services to high-risk populations to reduce the transmission of HIV. In Lane County and in Oregon, those at highest risk are men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs (PWID) and partners of those living with HIV.

Lane County Public Health offers HIV Counseling and Testing.

Important note: LCPH does not offer needle exchange services. They are now offered through the HIV Alliance, which can be found through this link:

HIV Testing & Counseling

LCPH provides HIV testing for all Lane County residents by appointment. The HIV test can be done alone or as part of the STD Program.

HIV is found in 4 body fluids (vaginal fluids, seminal fluids, blood, and breast milk). The only way to get infected with HIV is to have one of those four fluids from an infected partner get into your blood-stream and infect you. Learn more about HIV risk and transmission. In Oregon, the highest risk behaviors for contacting HIV are sharing injection supplies and having unprotected anal and/or vaginal sex.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Oregon Health Authority recommend public sector HIV testing for those at highest risk for HIV infection. 

                                                                                                          

LCPH offers both rapid and serology HIV tests, depending on an individual's risk factors. 

Any preliminary positive results must be re-tested before being lab confirmed. 


The CDC and OHA recommend public sector HIV testing for those most at-risk for HIV infection. In Lane County and in Oregon, Gay, Bisexual and other MSM make up 60-70% of all new HIV infections. The reason MSM in Oregon are at greater risk for HIV than PWID is because of the prevalence of HIV in the community.  The prevalence of HIV among PWID in Oregon is greatly accredited to an early adoption of Needle Exchange. Oregon, however is one of 15 priority states for HCV.



Needle Exchange  Services

LCPH Needle Exchange Program has moved to HIV Alliance located at 1966 Garden Avenue Eugene, OR 97403. The Needle Exchange Program provides health promotion and treatment readiness information, and 60 packs of new needles and used needle disposal, in order to reduce the spread of blood-borne infections (including Hepatitis C & HIV) among PWID and their families. 

The CDC and OHA recommend increased access to new syringes and syringe disposal as a proven effective way to stop the spread of blood-borne infections (including Hepatitis C and HIV) among PWID.  

For more information for Needle Exchange Program phone HIV Alliance at (541) 342-5088.
