HIV/STI testing at RFSL

In some cities, RFSL offers rapid HIV and syphilis testing. These services are open for men who have sex with men and trans people.

PrEP

Read more about PrEP – HIV preventative medications. We list how to access PrEP in different Swedish regions and offer a self-reporting tool that will help you find out if PrEP is relevant to you.

HIV

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that weakens the body’s immune system and was discovered around 1980. Today, most of the people who are HIV positive in Sweden have access to good and effective treatment, but HIV still cannot be cured.

If you are in treatment and have an undetectable viral load HIV can’t be transmitted through sex, even without using a condom. The safest sex you can have is therefore with someone with an undetectable viral load.
