We offer FREE and confidential HIV/STI rapid testing on a monthly basis at our office in partnership with Prutehi Hao. Results are available in 25 minutes.

We can help you navigate the health and social service system on Guam. We are partnered with numerous social service agencies (government and non-profit) on island to get you the care you need. In addition we are proud members of the Non-Communicable Disease Consortium, the HIV Planning Group, the Guam Coalition Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault, the PEACE Council, the State Epidemiological Operating Workgroup and the Guam Coalition for Peace and Justice. Our referral services include linkages to immunization services offered through the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services; family violence and sexual assault survivor services; access to employment, housing and legal services. Services offered through partner agencies may have eligibility requirements, conditions and costs not covered by GALA.


Over the last five years, we have offered support groups to LGBTQIA+ persons. Support groups are both open and closed groups, co-facilitated by GALA staff or interns.  Support groups are topic driven and help to foster a sense of community, especially among those feeling isolated or simply wishing to feel connected with others. Support groups are open to LGBTQIA+ persons ages 16 and up (ages 16-17 must complete parent consent form), who are asked to submit an intake form.

Creating LGBTQIA+ affirming environments and programs is key to reaching GALA's mission.
