Condoms are the only method of contraception that help to protect against most STIs, so it's important that you use them, especially with new partners.

We hold a HIV testing drop in from 5pm-8pm on the last Wednesday and Thursday of the month in Hanley.

 

The test is a quick fingerprick and gives you your results in 20 minutes.
