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.
