The cur­rent regu­la­tion on infec­tion pro­tec­tion mea­su­res against the spread of the corona virus of the government of Lower Sax­ony obli­ges us to record the full name, address and tele­phone num­ber of all our visi­tors and to keep the data for 3 weeks. All data is stored accord­ing to the GDPR and can­not be lin­ked to test results or other sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion. If you do not agree to this, you are cur­r­ently unable to use our offers.
We kindly ask for your understanding!

To ensure that our visi­tors and our employees are safe, the test evenings take place under the fol­lowing hygiene measures:

  • Ever­yone wears mouth-nose pro­tec­tion! Please bring your own mou­th­guard, other­wise we also have dis­po­sable mouthguards.
  • Please wash your hands as soon as you enter the CheckPoint.
  • Please do not enter the Check­Point before your appoint­ment. Other­wise we have to ask you to wait outside.
  • The con­sul­ta­tion takes place main­tai­ning the necessary distance. The exami­na­tion is car­ried out with gloves and mouth-nose protection.
  • We ask people with cold sym­ptoms such as cough, runny nose, fever etc. to post­pone the test until they are healthy again for 14 days.

We´re loo­king for­ward to see you! Stay healthy!!

Self-test for HIV

We offer a self-tes­ting kit for HIV at a pre­fe­ren­tial price of € 20 in the Hannöver­schen AIDS-Hilfe e.V.
This can be purcha­sed here and used at home, but you can also test yourself here in the com­pany of a con­sul­tant. The indi­vi­dual risk is cla­ri­fied with the con­sul­tant before the test. During the test we pay atten­tion to the cor­rect exe­cu­tion, but we are not allo­wed to lend a hand our­sel­ves. And of course we will con­ti­nue to help with advice and help, wha­te­ver the test result will be.

What is an HIV self-test?

An HIV self-test is an HIV test that is easy to do yourself, for example, at home. Some blood is remo­ved from the fin­ger­tip and pla­ced in a test device. To do this, you have to stab with a lan­cing device in the fin­ger­tip (leave). The HIV self-test indi­ca­tes the result after about a quar­ter of an hour. Like other com­mon test methods, the self-test does not detect HIV directly but anti­bo­dies to the virus. Atten­tion: The anti­bo­dies will form after some time. The­re­fore, the test can only rule out after 12 weeks that an infec­tion has occur­red. The result “HIV-nega­tive” is only reli­able when the pos­si­ble trans­mis­sion is twelve weeks ago. The test can often prove an exis­ting HIV infec­tion earlier.

How safe are the self-tests?

Accord­ing to the manu­fac­tu­rer, the HIV self-test “Exacto HIV Test” offe­red by us has a sen­si­ti­vity of more than 99% and is recom­men­ded by Deut­sche AIDS-Hilfe e.V.. The app­li­ca­tion is very simple, you only need one drop of blood.

How much does the self-test cost?

The self test costs 20€ (35€ for cou­ples)
The optio­nal coun­sel­ling and accom­pa­nied app­li­ca­tion is free.
