Since October, Hivpoint offers rapid HIV testing two days a week. The new Checkpoint service has easy access to walk-in HIV testing. Checkpoint combines two separate testing services previously aimed at different target groups. Checkpoint is now a more flexible HIV testing service for all our clients.

Checkpoint HIV testing service is for:

  • migrants
  • gay, bi and other men who have sex with men
  • travellers who have had unprotected sex in countries with high HIV prevalence, for example Russia and Thailand

Regular walk-in HIV testing is a easy way to get tested

Hivpoint provides low-threshold HIV testing services. In our view, regular, walk-in testing service is the most accessible to our customers.

Some of our clients use the service regularly, some take a test if needed. Some clients have never been tested for HIV before. With this in mind, Checkpoint rapid HIV testing service allows us to offer our customers HIV testing without an appointment two days a week!

The walk-in testing service is available:

  • Mondays from 12pm to 4pm
