HIV testing at Checkpoint Express Clinic

Q:

Hi! I was at the Express clinic today 21/05/2019. There wasn’t a HIV rapid blood test like last time, so I was wondering if the blood test covers the HIV as well? It is likely but I would like to have a confirmation.Thank you so much for everything you are doing to the community. Best regards

A:
Hi! HIV test is taking from blood sample at Checkpoint Express Clinic. All samples goes to laboratory. Test results comes within a week. Clinic informs only if HIV or other STI test result is positive by calling to the client. Clinic does not inform negative results. So it clinic staff is not contacting you within a week, then all your test results were negative. And thank you for your kind words. Checkpoint HIV-testing service every thursday at Helsinki is still using HIV rapid test.
