Our offer

Checkpoint BLN offers tests for HIV, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea, as well as medical treatment for these infections. We also advise you on your sexual health, substance use or queer issues. We also offer PrEP.

No strings attached!


PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and is the intake of pills that are also used in HIV therapy. PrEP is an effective protection against HIV. It can be taken daily or on demand. Studies have shown that both are effective.

We talk to you about how to take PrEP, about possible side effects and other important information you need to consider.

The Checkpoint BLN offers PrEP, individual PrEP counselling and the necessary preliminary and accompanying examinations for people with or without health insurance. Costs between 35 and 60 € per appointment might occur for people with no health insurance.


We offer anonymous tests for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and hepatitis C. Testing costs between 5 and 25 €, depending on which tests you want to do. If you have a low income, we will of course waive the costs.

Before testing, we will inform you about the test procedure and, if necessary, inform you about the ways of transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and discuss safer sex strategies. If we detect an STI or an HIV infection, we can start treatment immediately at Checkpoint BLN.

Book your appointment online or come along spontaneously!



When having sex, unplanned and unsafe situations happen.

In those situations, a possible HIV infection can be prevented with a high probability with PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis). A PEP should start as soon as possible and within 48 hours.
