Free In-person Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia Screening at Washington West Project

We currently cannot provide STD test only appointments.  Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia screenings are only provided to those receiving an HIV test. There is currently a shortage of STI testing supplies limiting the Gonorrhea and Chlamydia screenings we can provide. Therefore, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia screenings are provided:

  • For those receiving an HIV test
  • For those at risk for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia
  • While supplies are available.

Results for STI test

Results for all Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia screenings done at Washington West Project are provided by the Philadelphia Health Department, not by staff on-site.  For questions about your results please call the Philadelphia Health Department at: 215-685-6585
