Hepatitis C (HCV) Testing

HCV Testing

HIV Alliance offers FREE, confidential OraQuick Rapid Tests (results in 20 minutes).

This means that we administer a quick finger prick blood test with quick and accurate results.

We are currently able to test people in populations with a high prevalence of HCV. We recommend that high-risk populations test for HCV every 6 weeks.

High-risk populations include:

  • People who inject drugs (PWID) 
  • People who had tattoos or body piercings in an unclean environment using unsterile equipment.
  • People who worked in a place where you came in contact with infected blood or needles, for example, healthcare worker.
  • People who have received a blood transfusion or organ transplant before July 1992.
  • People with HIV or other STIs.
  • People who live with or are partners of people with HCV.
  • People born between 1945 – 1965.

We are also able to test those who are not considered “at-risk” on Mondays.

Those who do not fit into the high risk categories are welcome to come in 5-7 pm on Mondays.  

For more information on testing days and times please visit our testing calendar.
