At Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, we believe everyone should know their HIV status. That means every person, regardless of risk, should be tested for HIV and a part of routine lab screening like any other blood work that is done during an annual physical exam.
Patients do not have to have an HIV test, but will be offered an HIV test during most routine medical visits for your convenience. Callen-Lorde will also continue to have HIV Counseling & Testing appointments and patients can opt to test through those appointments.
If you test positive for HIV at Callen-Lorde, we will offer you medical, case coordination, and mental health services to help keep you healthy.
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center is an affirming, sex positive environment. We understand the importance of a full and satisfying sex life.

Callen-Lorde can meet your comprehensive health needs whether you are HIV positive or negative and regardless of ability to pay. We encourage everyone to obtain routine and preventive health care, including HIV testing.
