Canberra Sexual Health Centre focuses on prevention, diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and HIV.
The Centre is staffed by sexual health physicians, specialist registrars, nurse practitioners and sexual health nurses. We provide free and confidential care for all ages. We welcome gay and other men who have sex with men, young people and sex workers.
Walk-in clinics for sexual health care, no appointment necessary, run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9am - 2pm and on Wednesday between 1.30pm - 3.30pm.
There are limited appointments at other times, please phone (02) 6244 2184 during business hours (9:00am - 5:00pm).
Canberra Sexual Health Centre also provides outreach STI screening for at risk populations with partner organisations (AIDS Action Council ACT, Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT) and the HIV Program of ACT Medicare Local).
Canberra Sexual Health Centre and SHFPACT provide an innovative program of sexual health education with access to clinical care including testing, advice and tailored information for ACT college students. We provide education to a range of other external audiences and have an active research program.
