Free and Confidential Online STI Testing
Feb 9, 2018
Queensland residents aged 16 years or older are eligible to take a free urine test for chlamydia and gonorrhea through the new 13 HEALTH web test program. The program is funded by the Queensland Government and does not require young people to provide a Medicare number.
There are two options for accessing the free test- either in person at a pathology collection centre or by mail using a home mailing kit, which involves providing a urine sample and sending it in for analysis. In either case, the young person will be contacted confidentially with the test results. If the result is positive , 13 HEALTH can support the young person to find a suitable service for treatment.
