Get tested

You can get yourself tested anonymously at the Hivpoint. The test is free of charge. We provide HIV testing in Helsinki, Tampere and Oulu.

HIV testing is available for everyone once a week with an appointment.

Make an appointment:
Mon–Thu from 10 am to 3.30 pm. Tel. +358 207 465 705
If you are unable to make it, it is important that you cancel your appointment by calling our appointment line.

We use a HIV rapid test which is ready in 1 minute. The test is made on a blood sample from the fingertip. Our HIV rapid test is as reliable as the vein blood test performed at laboratories.

It is recommended to get yourself tested 1–3 months from possible transmission. A negative result from the test is reliable, when it has been three months since transmission. During this waiting period, it is important to always use a condom in all sexual contacts.

We don’t write certificates of test results. If you need a certificate you must contact public health care, for example your local health clinic.
