Good for various other HIV related services. Although may not capture all testing resources.

Testing

Check out this google map of locations!

Places funded by the county can be found in this pdf starting at page 18, in a chart with what services they provide. Mostly in Oakland.

A list from Steamworks about times HIV testing is available at Steamworks, in Berkeley. Not sure how up to date the list is. For men only, I believe. Should call to confirm.
