The pickup locations listed below are distribution partners for the I’m Ready Jamaica program. While you can order one to three HIV self-testing kits to be discreetly delivered to an address of your choice through the Health Connect Jamaica Virtual app, we know that some people are more comfortable picking up a kit in person.

Thanks to the support of the distribution partners below, we’re able to offer this option so you can choose to get a kit on your own terms.

How to pick up a kit

To pick up a FREE HIV self-testing kit, you have to participate in the I’m Ready Jamaica program. This means that you have to first download the Health Connect Jamaica Virtual app and create a profile so the app can generate a unique ID for you that will keep your participation private and confidential.

Once you’ve downloaded the app and created a profile, you can order up to three HIV self-testing kits for delivery or pick up. If you choose to pick up your kits, the order form will generate “pickup codes” that you can access through the app menu at the bottom-right of your screen. You’ll show these codes at the pickup location and then tap “claim” beside each pickup code when you are picking up your kits.

You can visit any of the pickup locations below to get your kit(s) once you have ordered them through the app and have your pickup codes available when collecting the kits. You don’t need to contact the locations in advance to let them know you’re coming, but you may want to confirm their opening hours.

What to expect when you pick up a kit

When you arrive at the pickup location, go to the dispensary section to speak with the pharmacist. To get the kit you’ll be asked to show your Kit pick-up claim code, which can be found in the Menu section of the app, and to “claim” your kit in the app by tapping the “Claim” button next to each pickup code.

If you have any questions about picking up a kit—or about testing, prevention, care or the I’m Ready Jamaica program—our peer navigators are available to support you through our secure telehealth service within the Health Connect Jamaica Virtual app.
