Looking For HIV Testing in Peru? Find HIV Center

AHF Perú provides free medical care for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), Rapid HIV Testing and access to antiretroviral treatment for people who are diagnosed with HIV. There are official AHF offices in 4 cities in Peru: Ica, Piura, Chiclayo, Iquitos and Lima.

Since 2013, AHF has collaborated with governmental and non-governmental organizations to expand the scope of HIV testing and treatment to populations at greatest risk, supporting timely initiation of treatment under the service linkage model.

As of this year 2022, the AHF Wellness Center in Lima also delivers antiretroviral treatment (ART) to patients diagnosed with HIV; joining the AHF centers in the cities of Iquitos and Piura, where a few years ago free ART was already being delivered to PLWHA in those localities.

Thanks to coordinated work with integrated health networks in various regions, AHF provides support with rapid tests, condoms, and other supplies to 18 health facilities throughout Peru.

The detection of HIV in the target populations and the distribution of rapid HIV tests in various regions has posed various challenges specific to the geography of the Peruvian territory. To reach indigenous communities in the jungle, AHF travels in a boat equipped with supplies and medical personnel, for other rural areas a motokar is used, and for other remote places a mobile unit is used; always trying to bring HIV prevention and treatment services to where they are most needed.

UNAIDS estimates that 98,000 people live with HIV in Peru, being a significant percentage of the transgender community and also the MSM population (Men who have sex with men).
