FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL ONLINE STI TESTING

FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL ONLINE STI TESTING

Queensland residents aged 16 years or older are eligible to take a free urine test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea through the new 13 HEALTH webtest 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.

Find out more about the program below to start recommending it as an option for young people here.
