Where to Go

Testing is very important in addressing HIV. Routine testing, as a part of a person’s healthcare, can significantly reduce the number of new HIV infections in our community. The sooner a person knows their HIV status, the better their options for treatment and their ability to stay in good health. For resources and support, click here.

Any Walk In or Family Doctor
An Alberta Health card may be required. HIV and STI tests are not necessarily part of routine care and often must be requested.
