Free HIV and HCV (Hepatitis C) testing is available at The Center (both walk-in and by appointment) at the following times.

Along with the OraQuick Rapid Antibody test, the Center will now be offering the UCSD Early Test on Fridays ONLY, from 9am to 8pm (last appt. at 7pm.) The Early Test is a specialized viral load test for HIV infection as early as one week after exposure.

The Center offers HIV and HCV (Hepatitis C) testing. We strive to provide a testing atmosphere that is comfortable and private. HIV testing is available anonymously or confidentially. HCV testing is provided confidentially. With an anonymous test, medical staff will not know your name. You will be known by a number given to you. With confidential testing, you use your name but your identity is protected by law.

Many other clinics, including the County of San Diego's four STD clinics, offer STD testing, as well as confidential HIV testing. The clinics listed below are walk-in clinics and register as many people as each clinic can accomodate. Please register for your visit as early in the day as possible, as clinics close when capacity is met.

The County of San Diego has four STD clinics throughout the county where confidential HIV and STD testing are offered. Visit for more information. There is a $15 charge for STD and HIV testing, which includes all appropriate testing, any neccessary treatments, vaccination and any follow-up visit within 30 days. This charge may be waived if you are unable to pay.
