Test coun­sel­ling
Have I been infec­ted with HIV? Espe­ci­ally after sexual con­tacts, uncer­tainty can arise with regard to the rele­vant pathways of infec­tion and the relia­bi­lity of the safer sex stra­te­gies. We resolve with you in a per­so­nal, anony­mous con­ver­sa­tion, whe­ther an infec­tion risk was pre­sent and whe­ther a HIV test would be use­ful. Please do not hesi­tate to call us or arrange an appoint­ment for con­su­la­tion or an HIV test.

People with HIV & dependents

People with HIV face the chal­lenge of living with the chro­nic disease. Life pro­s­pects have to be found again, live­li­hoods must be secu­red and the ill­ness inte­gra­ted into the pro­fes­sio­nal and pri­vate life. But also rela­ti­ves and fri­ends must learn to deal with the HIV infec­tion of a close per­son. We are happy to pro­vide you with the latest news and infor­ma­tion.
