GMHC’s Testing Center comes to you
We are able to provide free and confidential HIV tests off-site! For testing off-site, we use the INSTI HIV Rapid Antibody Test, which provides HIV test results within 2 minutes. If you are interested in GMHC's Testing Center providing HIV counseling and testing at your location, please reach out via email (, with details of your location, date/time of the event, and approximate number of attendees. In order to maintain confidentiality, we do require that a private space is available for testing.

About our HIV tests
Please be advised that for testing onsite, at GMHC, we use the Alere Determine HIV Rapid Test. The Alere Determine Rapid provides HIV test results in 20 minutes. To obtain a sample for testing, with Alere Determine, a GMHC counselor/phlebotomist will do a finger-stick (prick your finger with a lancet) to obtain a small sample of blood. If you have any questions about the Alere Determine HIV Rapid Test, please call us at (212) 367-1100. All services are confidential.
