Pride Month gives us another reason to talk about sexual health, that’s why we offer you the opportunity to get tested for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and C, free of charge, at The Steps, the community center of Single Step Foundation. You will get the results within minutes from a specialist. The testing is completely confidential and no pre-registration is required.


When:


June 16, 2021: 16:00 - 20:00

June 19, 2021: 16:00 - 20:00

June 23, 2021: 16:00 - 20:00


Where:


The Steps, 12 Bratya Miladinovi Str. Our representative will greet you with a prominent poster and will direct you to the testing location. Talk to him freely!


Why:


Finding out your HIV status is not scary and takes only a few minutes, but gives you peace of mind after that. Since there are other infections besides HIV that are important to watch out for, we are offering a free package only now, on the occasion of Pride. Various scientific data show that often in Bulgaria people learn that they are HIV-positive years after they became infected. This is due to irregular testing, fear and stigma. HIV is now only a chronic disease, thanks to antiretroviral therapy, which is provided free of charge in Bulgaria.
