Checkpoint Express offers HIV rapid testing in a mobile unit in Helsinki area for gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men. The mobile unit is a van that you recognize from Checkpoint-signs. In addition to the testing, there’s also a chance to talk about safe sex and sexually transmitted infections with our staff. From the van you can get brochures, condoms and lubricants. Mobile unit is operated on summer season. Occasionally Checkpoint Express also organizes testing for other STIs and hepatitis vaccinations (the vaccinations are not available right now).
