What is Anonymous HIV testing?

Anonymous HIV testing does not require you to provide any names, NRIC numbers or contact numbers. Instead, a number is usually assigned to the test which allows the person being tested to receive the test results. No personal particulars are recorded, even with positive results of the HIV tests.

You will be required to fill in an anonymous questionnaire so that you can inform more about yourself but all details will be kept strictly confidential.

At Tanjong Pagar Medical Clinic, you can have your HIV test done anonymously without having to provide your personal identifiable details.

The anonymous HIV testing is open to all patients regardless of race or nationality.

How to do an anonymous HIV test at Tanjong Pagar HIV Clinic

  1. For registration, inform our counter staff you would like to do AHT, or anonymous testing.
  2. You will be required to fill in an anonymous questionnaire but no personal identifiable details are required.
  3. You will then be registered with an anonymous registration number AHT-XXXXX and entered into the current clinic queue.
  4. When it comes to your turn, you will be asked to enter the doctor’s room for your anonymous HIV testing.
  5. Pre- and post-test counselling will be provided to all persons who undergo anonymous HIV testing. The person will also be given information on the “window period” for HIV infection.
  6. You can choose between doing an anonymous HIV rapid test using either oral fluid or blood from finger prick using rapid HIV test kits registered with the Health Sciences Authority.
  7. The results of the rapid HIV tests will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes, during which you may either wait in the clinic waiting area or step outside the clinic for a walk.
  8. After 15 – 20 minutes, you will be asked to enter the doctor’s room again for the HIV test result. A result slip showing the type of rapid HIV test performed and the result may be provided to you upon request.
  9. Persons with reactive rapid HIV test results will be asked to provide a venous blood sample for confirmatory Western Blot testing. The cost of the confirmatory Western Blot test is free of charge for Singaporeans and will be borne by the government. The results for the confirmatory test will take up to two weeks. Again, no personal details are required and the confirmatory testing is also fully anonymous.
  10. Persons who are found to be HIV-positive will be given appropriate medical advice and counselling. We provide referrals to Communicable Disease Centre, private infectious disease specialists or even overseas hospital specialists for HIV follow-up and management.

Why do we need anonymous HIV testing?

Anonymous HIV testing encourages more individuals who might suspect that they are at risk to go for early HIV testing.

Anonymous HIV testing offers a level of privacy and confidentiality that encourages more people to find out about their HIV status.

Early HIV testing helps to control the spread of HIV as people living with HIV/AIDS can take appropriate measures to protect their partners from being infected. It also allows them to seek to seek early treatment and care.

Rapid HIV testing reduces the anxiety associated with the long waiting period for an HIV test result. It also allows the result to be informed to the patient in person on the same day, eliminating the need to collect any form of personal particulars or contact information.
