A free HIV/STI test is available to anyone with a low income.Before testing, we will inform you about the test procedure, answer your questions on the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and discuss safer sex strategies. In case of a positive diagnosis, we also provide treatment at Checkpoint BLN.
PrEP reliably prevents HIV infection. Short for pre-exposure prophylaxis, it refers to HIV-negative people taking medication that protects them from catching the virus.Checkpoint BLN offers PrEP counseling, prescription and the required preliminary and ongoing check-ups both for people with and without health insurance. Those without health insurance may incur costs between €35–60 per appointment.In our initial video call, we will give you information on how to take PrEP, possible side effects and everything else you need to consider. We will then arrange an on-site appointment for all further steps (i.e. HIV/STI tests and prescription).
In the heat of the moment, accidents can happen. Forgot to take your PrEP? Skipped the condom, or it broke?In those situations PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) has a high probability of preventing a HIV infection. The treatment with PEP should start as soon as possible and within 48 hours at the latest.Don’t hesitate and visit us as soon as possible: Mon-Thu 3pm-8pm
