    hi..goodevening...different blood tests for different things..ur blood sample collected could be used for myriads of investigations..in that sense, d test uu did is malaria test..so,to know ur HIV status,pls go for HIV voluntary counselling and testing in a recognised government facility--it is absolutely free..takecare
