Because of COVID19 (coronavirus), SSHC is now an APPOINTMENT ONLY service (no walk ins). 

You can call on (02) 9382 7440 to make an appointment.

If you have a cough or fever, please discuss your options when you call.

Sex with casual partners is discouraged during this time.

 

GOT SYMPTOMS?

Most STIs don't have symptoms and you might never know you have been infected with one. But if you do get symptoms, the most common ones are pain when peeing, sores or blisters, lumps, or a discharge from your vagina or penis.

If you think you have symptoms of an STI please use the Am I OK? online risk assessment tool. We'll ask you a few questions about your recent sexual activity and at the end we'll tell you what to do next.

About You

We deliver services especially to those from some priority groups, so if you see yourself as belonging to any of these, then SSHC is the place for you.
Living with HIV

We have HIV specialist staff and provide free and confidential testing, treatment and care for people at risk of or living with HIV.

Make an appointment or see our Visiting Us page for more information on our services.

PrEP is the use of antiretroviral drugs, taken by HIV negative people to prevent HIV infection. PrEP stands for pre exposure prophylaxis. Unlike post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) which is taken after a potential exposure to HIV, PrEP is taken on an ongoing basis and it provides protection against HIV. Studies from around the world have shown that if PrEP is taken daily, it prevents HIV.

If you would more information about PrEP, please ask your doctor or nurse when you visit, or find more information at www.endinghiv.org.au
