Hivpoint

Hivpoint is a non-profit organization (NGO). The aim of the Hivpoint run by Finnish HIV Foundation is to prevent HIV infections, support people living with HIV, their family members and closed ones as well as the people worried about infection. Hivpoint also aims to increase the abilities of the social, health and educational professionals to confront the HIV infected people, their family members and people worried about infection.

Hivpoint established in 1986 is mainly funded by the Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations (STEA), in connection with the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The organization offers a wide range of services for professionals in social and health care, nurture and education as well as HIV infected people, their family members and the people worried about infection.
