The Berkeley Free Clinic provides free tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

HIV

We provide free rapid HIV tests. Rapid HIV tests return a result about 40 minutes after we draw the blood sample. For more about the results of rapid HIV tests, check out our resources on HIV testing.

Rapid HIV tests are available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of every week from 7pm - 9pm, by appointment only. Call at 5:45 to schedule an appointment. Saturdays from 11-2pm* and then 3pm - 5pm drop-in; and Sundays 4pm - 7pm, drop-in.

*On Saturdays, we do not offer HIV+STI services for cisgender men (a cisgender man is a person who was assigned male at birth and currently identifies as male). Please click here for more information about Saturday services.

We also provide anonymous rapid HIV tests on Saturdays from 3pm-5pm drop-in and Sundays from 4pm-7pm, drop-in. We do not record your name or any other identifying information for these anonymous tests. As a consequence, we can only give the results for anonymous rapid HIV tests in person.

Anonymous rapid HIV tests are available on Saturdays from 3pm - 5pm and Sundays 4pm - 7pm, walk-in clients only.
