How does Checkpoint HIV testing service work?
Rapid HIV test can be done 4-6 weeks after the exposure to HIV, but a negative test result is fully reliable 3 months after the exposure.
The rapid HIV test is done by taking a small drop of blood from the fingertip. The result will be available in 60 seconds.
Checkpoint HIV testing service is anonymous and free of charge.

Free HIV and other STI tests are available at public health centers
Checkpoint HIV testing service offers only HIV tests. Other sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and syfilis are much more easily transmitted. After unprotected sex, it is good to test for all STIs even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.
