HIV Testing and Referral

The Health Department offers HIV antibody testing. The test for HIV identifies the presence of antibodies against the HIV virus. If antibodies are found, the individual is considered a carrier of the virus and able to spread it. The test will not tell if the individual has AIDS. All services are confidential and you may choose to be tested anonymously.

The Continuum of Care Program is a community based program that offers a broad spectrum of outpatient services to HIV infected individuals throughout the Upper Peninsula. The goals of the program include financial assistance for early medical intervention, maintenance of optimal health, and access to support services.

Residents of the UP who are infected with the HIV virus or their families are eligible for this program. Referrals can be self directed or made by other health care providers with the written consent of the client.

For more information about the Continuum of Care Program contact Laura Fredrickson (906)475-7651 or 1-800-956-2670.
