Interested in Rapid HIV Testing?
You’re invited to take part in a Canadian study for the point-of-care use of the
OraQuick ADVANCE® HIV-1/2 Test
About the Study
Our team at St. Michael’s Hospital is looking for people who:
Are 18 years or older and can communicate in English or French
Have already been diagnosed with HIV in the past 5 years, OR
Have not had an HIV test in the past 6 months, and do not know their status.
This research involves a confidential HIV testing session with healthcare providers, including a short survey, a small blood sample, and a fingerstick and oral fluid sample. Depending on your HIV status when you join the study, you may be asked to do a short, follow-up visit about 2 weeks after to receive your confirmatory test results. If you are eligible to take part in this research study, you will receive an honorarium in recognition of your time.
If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jemal Demeke at:
