We are there where you party, dance and flirt.
There are people who don’t dare go to Checkpoint. Others may not have the opportunity, time or even know that we exist. For all these people, we come to where you spend your free time and offer the opportunity to get tested and counselled for the most common STIs. Anonymous and uncomplicated.
Why do we often show up where you party and put a condom in your hand?
Because HIV is still an issue and it also helps in part against other STIs. Mainly though, we want to get in touch with you. Ask us your questions about all topics concerning sexual health.
Why can’t you test yourself often enough?
Because sexually transmitted infections are still on the rise. We also know that a lot of MSM do not notice any symptoms, although they have one or more bacterial infections and therefore can pass them on without knowing. Therefore, protect yourself, your partners and the health of the community and get tested when we are on site.
Why are tests outside Checkpoint sometimes cheaper than at Checkpoint itself?
We are financially supported by the Canton of Zurich, ViiV and Gilead for our mobile work.
