Hepatitis Testing & Services
Hepatitis C testing is available to some patients after they have completed a risk history, and had an STD or HIV testing. Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B immunization/vaccination series are offered to those at highest risk for contracting the diseases. The Hepatitis A series is two shots at 0 and 6 months. The Hepatitis B series is three shots at 0, 1, and 6 months. You must complete an entire series for full protection against that particular virus. Click here for more.
HIV Testing & Services
Testing for the antibodies to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is offered on an “opt-out” basis in the STD Clinic. This means that it is automatically included with the testing for the other STDs, unless a client specifically declines only the HIV test. The test specimen may be obtained by drawing blood from a vein, taking an oral swab, or by fingerstick blood. Prior to this, you will undergo an HIV/STD/Hepatitis risk assessment counseling with a certified HIV counselor.
You are able to test for HIV on an anonymous basis or on a confidential/medical record basis. Anonymous HIV testing means there is only a number linking you to this specimen. HIV testing on a confidential/medical record basis means your specimen is linked to a medical record containing your name. Regardless of which method you decide to test, all information shared and your test results are kept very strictly confidential by Hawai‘i Revised Statutes. Click here for more information on HIV.

HIV Partner Counseling & Referral Services (PCRS)
Partner Counseling and Referral Services is a voluntary prevention activity for persons who are living with HIV and their sex and needle-sharing partners, with the goals of:
- prevention of HIV transmission to uninfected partners;
- helping partners get earlier access to individualized counseling, HIV testing, medical treatment, and other prevention activities
Specially trained counselors discuss the different ways sex and needle-sharing partners can be informed of possible exposure to HIV without revealing the identity of the person with HIV. This service is available to those diagnosed through the STD/HIV Clinic, as well as those under the care of a private physician.
Counselors are available during the following hours to assist anyone with partner services:
