HIV and STI Testing and Prevention

We offer free and confidential testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in a variety of locations.

Call 773-702-5872 for more information or to schedule an appointment. You may also schedule an appointment directly using this link.

You may visit us at:

Wyler Hospital

5837 S Maryland, Suite C-615


Mobile Medical Unit

at various community sites. See our Calendar of Events.

Your HIV testing session will include a rapid test, with results available in as little as 60 seconds, plus a blood draw for more advanced lab-based testing. We also offer testing for syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and Hepatitis B & C. Patients in need of linkage to HIV care, PrEP (a daily medication taken to prevent HIV infection), or STI treatment will be referred to an appropriate medical provider.

We advocate and support our patients with dignity, respect, and compassion.

Testing can be scheduled by appointment at 773.702.5872, or you may visit us without an appointment during our regular mobile testing events.

We also offer free safe sex kits that include condoms (both insertive and receptive) and lubricant. All services are available to clients aged 12 and up. As visits to the office are limited during COVID, if visiting us at our main office in Wyler Hospital, please call your tester to let them know to come down and get you, or use the Goldblatt (860 E 59th St) or Mitchell (5841 S Maryland Ave) entrances and notify the security that you have an appointment with Care2Prevent in the Wyler building.
