Testpoint is for you who are a man who have sex with men, for you who are a trans person and for you who are an LGBTQ person who recently came to Sweden. You can also get tested here if you’ve had sex for compensation.
Testpoint makes HIV testing more accessible by providing services at night and in places other than healthcare centers and hospitals. You don’t need to make an appointment, just show up.
The test is anonymous. We don’t keep records of your visit and you don’t need to identify yourself. We have a survey that you can partake in, but it’s voluntary.
The test is of course free of charge.
How is the test taken?
The test is taken by a pinprick in the finger and a few drops of blood are mixed with reagents which are poured into a test kit. You will get the results after about 15 minutes.
If the test shows that you’re HIV positive?
If the test indicates that you might be HIV positive you will get rapid access to healthcare and a lab test at the infection clinic at USÖ.
Do you need an interpreter during the test?
