Do I need ID to get tested for syphillis, gonnorhhea, or HIV?

In Manitoba, the best piece of ID to bring to a medical appointment is your Manitoba Health Card. In many cases, it’s the only piece of identification that a health care provider will need.

If you don’t have your Manitoba Heath Card, you can apply to get it replaced. Let the STI testing provider know you don’t have a Manitoba Health Card. In most cases an alternative ID can be used. STI testing is worth finding a solution to any ID barrier you may have.

I hope that’s helpful!
