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.
