Philadelphia Community Health Alternatives (PCHA) is now providing free, anonymous HIV testing at HUP.
The PCHA site operates every Tuesday from 12:30 to 4 p.m. No appointment is required, testing is done on a walk-in basis. This may result in a lengthy wait for students if the service becomes popular, so please be forewarned. The location of the service is in the Family Planning Clinic, 1 West Gates (enter directly across Spruce Street from Houston Hall). PCHA also operates the Mazzoni Clinic at 1642 Pine St., which has a long history of providing quality HIV testing, counseling, and support services. Their phone number is 735-1911.
In addition, there are currently two other anonymous, free HIV testing sites within walking distance of the Penn campus:
Referrals to other HIV-related services can be obtained from Penn's Office of Health Education at 573-3525 (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
