Order a free HIV self test kit
We're offering free HIV self test kits to people within Essex and Thurrock from groups most affected by HIV.
We normally charge £15 for the tests. Providing you live in the qualifying area, under the local authority of Essex county council or Thurrock council, you won't be asked for payment at checkout.
If you aren't eligible for a test from this service, you can search for other free online HIV testing options.
Sexual health information and advice
We offer sexual health information on safer sex and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
