Utilization of health facilities for HIV testing is an important indicator to record and track the spread and infection of HIV in Indonesia. This study aimed to determine the description of the utilization of places for HIV test in Indonesia nationwide. An analytical descriptive study was undertaken. Data from Indonesia Demographic Health Survey was used with total of 22,193 respondents aged 15–54 years. We used Descriptive and logistic regression to analyze the data with p <.05. The most respondents were taken for HIV testing in government hospital (72.87%) and other places were very low. We found that respondents aged 50–54 years were more likely to be with a doctor as a place for HIV testing (AOR: 1.76, 95%CI:1.06–2.93). Planning for comprehensive and reaching remote areas with culture-based strategy in Indonesia needs attention and health education about the HIV testing for screening, prevention, and management needs to be optimized.
