1 Answer:

Hello Ottys, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.

The HIV test that is commonly used at the health center is an HIV test using an examination called the HIV rapid test, which is an examination using a tool that can give positive or negative results quickly with a level of accuracy and accuracy to detect the presence of antibodies against the HIV virus can reach 99.8 % depends on the method used on the tool. So, in general the screening tools used at the Puskesmas can detect HIV infection with almost 100% truth.

For your second question, the HIV test and the syphilis test are two different tests. Examination of HIV and syphilis may be requested to be done together because the way of transmission is almost the same, one of them through sexual intercourse. However, syphilis is a different disease from HIV, because the causes and methods of treatment are different, besides the way the examination is different. You can read more about testing for HIV and syphilis in the following article:
