The testing center is located just above AHF's Out of the Closet Thrift Store at 9th and Folsom streets in the South of Market District.

Utilizing the state-of-the-art INSTI Rapid HIV Test, the testing center will be able to provide people with their test results in just 60 seconds. With its late-night walk-in opportunities for testing, this facility offers an opportunity for people who otherwise wouldn't be able to access testing hours that coincide with regularbusiness hours to learn their HIV status.


"Our new South of Market location offers a consistent late night testing opportunity for people who are out enjoying San Francisco's nightlife," said Christopher Mejia, Senior Regional Program Manager for AHF. "The use of the one-minute INSTI rapid test allows people to take just a moment of their evening to stop by and conveniently learn their HIV status."

The foundation operates three Out of the Closet Thrift Stores in San Francisco's Castro District, Polk Gulch and SoMa District, as well as in Oakland and Berkeley. AHF also operates specialized HIV healthcare centers in San Francisco and in Oakland, three AHF Pharmacies covering both San Francisco and Oakland, and a specialized STD testing center for both men and women in Oakland. 96 cents of every dollar spent in the pharmacies and thrift stores directly support AHF's HIV/AIDS treatment centers in 32 countries worldwide.
