The European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week is an initiative that has been taking place in several European countries since 2013. In 2018, the campaign will take place between 23-30 November. The goal of this initiative is to raise the Portuguese population's awareness of the benefits of HIV and hepatitis testing and increase the knowledge on these infections, thus contributing to an early diagnosis and the referral to healthcare services.
As in previous years, APDES (through the PortoG
project) will participate in this initiative, by providing information and advice and carrying out quick HIV and Hepatitis B and C tests.
The screenings will take place:
- November 23, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 at APDES' headquarters (between 10AM and 4PM).
- November 27 at Bonfim's Parish Council (Gabinete Polivalente) (between 2PM and 5PM).
- November 30 at Centro GIS
(between 2PM and 5PM).
Please check here the places where you can do your tests.
The tests are confidential, free and anonymous.
