Rapid HIV Testing
During the academic year, The University Students’ Council provides free anonymous Rapid HIV Testing for all students. This service is offered on an anonymous appointment basis. In order to book an appointment or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The testing is offered & facilitated by the Options Clinic of London.
Unfortunately, Options London does not run a clinic at UWO in the summer, but will continue to do so in September. For more information you can contact them at 519.673.4427. Alternatively, you can go to their downtown clinics at the following locations and times:
Additionally, the Middlesex London Health Unit offers an STI Clinic Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-7PM (registration starting at 4:30) and Fridays from 8:30-10:30AM. This results take one week, but the services are free and anonymous. Their clinic is located at 50 King Street, located next to the John Labatt Center.
Rapid HIV Testing has been approved by Health Canada, having the same sensitivity, specificity, and performance characteristics for HIV Screening as HIV screening methods used in approved HIV testing laboratories.
Rapid HIV Testing is designed for single use and screens one specimen of whole blood for HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies.
These tests are 99.5% accurate, showing only a 0.5% margin of error. It is most accurate when performed 3-6 months after HIV-risky behaviour.
