Delays with blood test results at OUT’s TEN81 clinic

While it has now ended, the strike led to a huge backlog, and resulted in some of our clients’ blood samples being lost by the NHLS or becoming “out of date” for testing. Some clients have thus had to be asked to return to the TEN81 clinic for new blood samples. This is unfortunately necessary to ensure that the results they receive are accurate.

If you have any questions about your tests and / or blood samples please don’t hesitate to call us on 012 430 3272.



Have you been threatened, hit, raped or had your property damaged or stolen because you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI)? Then you have been a victim of a hate crime.
OUT offers exciting training to mainstream service providers and other interested parties. The training assists individuals to understand themselves as sexual beings.
Currently OUT distributes safer sex packs to a range of venues in Tshwane that are utilised by gay men and lesbian women. These packs also include responsible sex messaging, appropriate barrier methods and lube.
OUT's Engage Men’s Health project offers free and confidential sexual health services to gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM).
