We offer free, fast, confidential HIV tests at multiple locations across San Francisco. All of our HIV/STI testing is open (focused) to gay men and other men who have sex with guys, as well as people who inject drugs, trans women, and trans men. Due to the low rates of HIV among heterosexual couples and women in San Francisco (SF Epi Data) we provide referrals for these men and women to SF Planned Parenthood and Women's Community Clinic (who only see female identified persons).
All of our locations offer rapid HIV testing, with results available in 20 minutes. Some of our locations provide additional services including STI testing, Hepatitis A and B vaccinations, and Hepatitis C testing.

We believe that San Francisco can be the first U.S. city to end the HIV epidemic. Everyday, we provide free prevention and care services to people in hard-hit neighborhoods—and advocate for them to public officials—because we can envision the day when we beat HIV.
