Free HIV Screening


Pin It

Next Thursday, 1 December 2011, marks the 22nd anniversary of World AIDS Day. First observed in 1988, World AIDS Day (WAD) has served to raise awareness about the epidemic, honour those who have died, focus attention on issues that are key to a successful response and inspire positive action.

With some 33.3 million people around the world currently living with HIV/AIDS, World AIDS Day has become one of the most recognised international health days.

As part of this year’s local World AIDS Day activities, the Health Services Authority once again offers free HIV screening starting this Saturday, 26 November through to Friday, 2 December 2011.

On Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, no appointment is necessary during this week and the waiting time for testing is usually no more than ten minutes.

The free testing and counselling will be available from 9 am to 2pm at the following locations:

Cost You Less: Saturday, 26 November

West Bay and Bodden Town Clinic, Public Health Clinic and Faith Hospital, Cayman Brac: Monday, 28 November – Friday, 2 December

North Side Clinic: Tuesday, 29 November and Friday, 2 December

East End Clinic: Monday, 28 November and Thursday, 1 December

On Little Cayman, tests will be done at the Health Centre, but by prior arrangement only. Residents must call 948-0072 to make an appointment.
