[18th October (Sun)] We will carry out a One-coin Testing for HIV (AIDS)
We are going to have a One coin (500yen) HIV testing day, with less than 10 minutes of time spent at the clinic!
Due to the novel Coronavirus infection outbreak, many of the Public health centers have ceased HIV free testing.
We hope to reach out to those who are worried about HIV infection, or those who do not have time during the week, or those who cannot afford testing at clinics due to expensive fee.

How is One Coin possible?
It is our hope to provide HIV testing service to as many people as possible. Feel free to come with your friends too.
How is 10 minutes possible?
If reservation and Web questionnaire is done in advance, we will have all your information beforehand. Once you come to the clinic, we will take your blood sample and off you go. Your results will be sent to your LINE later. So in total, 10 minutes will be enough.
Why test syphilis also?
Syphilis in Japan has been rising since 2015, and we opt to test together with HIV for your benefit.
