STRIP Clinics

Accessing sexual health checks regularly is an essential part of a healthy sex life, and we're making it even simpler to get tested! 

The STRIP clinics have been designed to make it easier and more comfortable for the LGBTIQ communities to look after our sexual health. The STRIP clinics are quick and easy as well as free to access – they are anonymous and no Medicare card or booking is required.

Friendly and professional nurses from the Canberra Sexual Health Centre and Capital Health Network are in attendance and your results are available the following week in person, or sooner over the phone or via text message*.

Consultations take 30 to 45 minutes. No appointment is necessary but we suggest booking to minimise your wait time.

Tests conducted at STRIP clinics are looking for asymptomatic STIs, those that do not always have obvious symptoms, including;

  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis’ A, B and C
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea

All tests are voluntary and can be discussed with the nurses. The tests are designed to be as non-invasive as possible, and some samples are self-collected in privacy. To make a booking contact the AIDS Action Council.

The STRIP clinics have been a project of PACT, the Partnership Approach to Comprehensive Testing, since 2002. PACT is collaboration between the AIDS Action Council, Canberra Sexual Health Centre, Medicare Local ACT, SWOP ACT and Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT as well as the venues that allow the clinics on their premises.

*Receiving results via phone call or SMS is optional after discussion with the clinician.
