Order an HIV test. Do it at home. Get your results.
GetaKit is a study that offers mail-out delivery of free HIV self-test kits in Ottawa and surrounding regions. You’re eligible if you are:
- 16 or older
- Not currently taking PrEP
- HIV negative, or unsure of your status
- Not enrolled in an HIV vaccine trial
- Not diagnosed with a bleeding disorder
GetaKit update: We made some changes to the website to make it better for you. This means you may have to make a new account to order your next test or report a previous result. We apologize for any inconvenience and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to the GetaKit team [email protected]
Who is GetaKit?
GetaKit is co-led by the University of Ottawa and the OHTN, in collaboration with the AIDS Committee of Ottawa, MAX Ottawa, and Ottawa Public Health.
So what’s involved?
Order your HIV self-test kit.
Get your kit in the mail.
Report your results.
But what about my results?
This program takes on a status-neutral approach.
This means you’ll be connected to support whether your results are positive or negative. You will be contacted directly and given treatment for positive HIV test results.
I have questions.
