We are generally available weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Our office is located at 9 Pleasant St., Providence, RI, 02906 just off North Main Street and block north of Doyle Avenue.
Additionally, we can make referrals to other locations in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts for HIV and STI screening if you need them.
About the Process
Before You Arrive
The rapid HIV, hepatitis C, and syphilis tests provide results in approximately 20 minutes.
The tests involve a simple finger prick to collect a drop of blood.
An oral swab test may be available as an alternative. It’s recommended you do not eat, brush your teeth, or floss for 30 minutes before an oral swab test.
We understand some people may feel nervous about getting tested or have questions they’d like answered ahead of time or during their test. Our team is always happy to assist, answer questions, and our goal is to help everyone—regardless of their race/ethnicity, sex, age, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation—feel welcome and comfortable getting tested.
About the Van
APRI launched our mobile testing van in summer 2018. It allows us to visit and provide rapid HIV, hepatitis C, and syphilis testing in a variety of locations around Rhode Island. The fully customized van features a small, private comfortable seating area for clients and is fully lit, with A/C and heat.
