Whether you already know plenty about HIV or it’s your first time, you’re welcome to visit for testing, a chat, and referrals to other community services like counselling that you may find useful.
We can spend as much time as you need to talk about your health and answer your questions. Everything you tell us is confidential.
If you have a positive screening result, it’s no big deal! We’ll take a blood sample to confirm the result and support you through the process. HIV isn’t scary like it used to be. New treatments are easy to take, have less side effects than in the past, and are very effective. Most people in Australia with HIV who take medication are very healthy and have an undetectable viral load, which prevents sickness and prevents passing on the virus.
QPP and RAPID can help you with information, support, and advice about every part of HIV, from prevention and testing to managing treatment and other aspects if you have a positive test. Visit the RAPID website for more information.

If you don’t live near us, or you’d prefer to test privately, you can order a home test. You’ll receive the simple kit discreetly in the mail.
When To Test
How often you test is up to you and depends on your sexual activity. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of a sexual health check at least every year, even if you’re in a monogamous relationship.
