What is SAFER SIX?

 

SAFER SIX is a safe space designed for all individuals, regardless of gender and sexual orientation to encourage more sexual testing and normalizing treatment as a part of regular everyday health screening for all individuals.  

We felt there was a service lacking for the citizens of West Toronto and want to fill that void.

SAFER SIX offers tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Where possible, we’ll treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – sometimes samples need to be sent off to laboratories and if we find any infection, we’ll contact you immediately to ask you to follow-up for treatment.

SAFER SIX offers tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Where possible, we’ll treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – sometimes samples need to be sent off to laboratories and if we find any infection, we’ll contact you immediately to ask you to follow-up for treatment.

For now, this clinic will take place in the space of "Inclusive and Comprehensive Medical Care" in Unit 505 at 27 Roncesvalles Avenue.
