About Adelaide Sexual Health Centre

If you require PEP during our closing hours please contact the PEP hotline on 1800 022 226 or the emergency department at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Any other STI test can be performed by a general practitioner.


Adelaide Sexual Health Centre provides a free, confidential service. This includes advice, testing and treatment for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

We also require all clients to complete the “AM I OK” self-assessment tool. This will determine if an appointment is needed. For those that do not need an appointment, options will be provided at the end of the self-assessment.
