Drop In Testing Ending HIV Culture Artcile

Temporarily cancelled: Free HIV test drop-in clinic! No appointment needed.


Due to contract tracing and social distancing requirements under COVID-19 Alert Level 2 we are currently not offering any drop-in testing in our centres.

Booked appointments are still available and we'll be adhering to safe distancing during appointments, our team will guide you once you arrive for your appointment. Home self-test kits are also still available to order.

Please DON'T attend your appointment if you are experiencing any cold or flu symptoms - contact our team to help you change your booking.


 

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF) offers a drop-in testing clinic every Wednesday and Saturday in Auckland and Wellington, and every Wednesday in Christchurch. No appointment is needed - just walk in. Appointments for this free, confidential HIV and syphilis test are approximately 15-20 minutes.

A rapid HIV test involves a simple finger prick to draw blood and is facilitated by trained specialists who are there to support you through the process.

STI testing is also available. Please note that if you have symptoms of an STI, or someone you've had sex with has told you that they have an STI, we are unable to test you and cannot diagnose STIs or provide treatment at our Drop-in service. Please go directly to a sexual health clinic, a medical clinic or your GP for diagnosis and treatment.

Triaging will be required to check if you are eligible to test with us on the day – please understand that if we’re unable to test you, it’s not because we don’t want to help. If you would still like to get tested you can still speak with your GP/medical centre/family doctor or find other options with our test booking tool.
