There is a variety of different materials that can be ordered from Hivpoint, for example brochures, posters, condoms and lubricants. Most of the materials are in Finnish and they can be found and ordered from Hivpoint’s webshop under the Finnish webpages under header ”materiaalit”. There are some materials in English listed below.
Brochures are for the most part free of charge, 100 copies/brochure/order. The price for materials subject to charge are mentioned separately by the introductory text. If you order more than 100 copies, we charge for the excess quantity €0.10 per copy (the basket will display a false total sum, we will send an invoice with the correct sum). A P&P fee will be added to all orders: €15 in the Helsinki metropolitan area (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen) and €20 for the rest of Finland. The P&P fee includes packing materials, postage and delivery by Matkahuolto.
You can avoid the P&P fee by picking up the material yourself from the Helsinki office of the Hivpoint (Unioninkatu 45 K).
