Our member organisation Duga launched a new program on the HIV/AIDS-a and sexually transmitted diseases prevention.
Checkpoint Belgrade is a safe space within which, in one place, is possible to receive confidentially and anonymously provided services in the field of prevention, HIV testing and other sexually transmitted infections, as well as psycho-social support. All services are provided free of charge, without referral and personal documents needed.
The checkpoint is run by experienced, certified community counselors, in a team with a network of expert associates in the field of medicine and social protection. All members of the team are especially sensitive to work with MSM and LGBTIQ + people as well as members of other groups who face stigma and discrimination in society. The testing process is fast and painless. Blood is drawn from the finger. The results are ready in 15 minutes. Confidential counseling before and after testing is included in the testing process.
Checkpoint Belgrade provides the following free services:
- Voluntary, confidential counseling and testing (DPST) for HIV, hepatitis C and syphilis
- Dermal-venereological consultations
- Psycho-social support
- PrEP/PEP counseling
- Networking and monitoring in other institutions and partner organizations
- Condoms, lubricants and educational material
The program is supported by Gilead Science.
