HIV/AIDS counselling/Information on sexually-transmitted infections (STI)

There are diseases that you can get by having sex such as HIV, hepatitis and syphilis. Condoms can protect against infection.

An HIV infection can be treated very successfully with drugs these days. It is therefore important to be tested early. Other sexually-transmitted infections (STI) can be treated more simply and successfully the earlier they are detected and treated.

You can obtain information free of charge from the responsible counselling agencies or from your local health office, where you can be tested. You can also seek advice and take the test without giving your name.

  • the local health office,
  • Pro Familia
  • AIDS counselling offices
  • the Migration Advisory Service for Adult Immigrants and the Youth Advisory Service.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
