Community Testing Sites & Outreach Services

 

We have community testing sites across Chicagoland.

HIV prevention is a high priority for Howard Brown Health. Through community outreach and prevention efforts, and services that we offer at our clinic locations, we reach a broad and diverse community throughout Chicagoland.

Outreach Services

If you’d like free HIV/STI screening, the Prevention department at Howard Brown provides services to the LGBTQ community at the following venues. All locations offer Testing Together! Testing Together is an HIV testing and counseling service that allows partners to receive their rapid results, together. This service provides a basis for an ongoing healthy conversation between you and your partner about HIV in your relationship, and will allow you to talk openly about building a protection plan together. For more information or confirmation of available services, call 773.388.8895.

Please see our calendar at howardbrown.org/events for special hours or cancellations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
