They operate in Athens (2012) and Thessaloniki (2014) and are targeted at the sexually active population, approaching vulnerable social groups such as men who have sex with men, sex workers, immigrants, Roma, homeless people, prisoners and intravenous drug users with targeted campaigns and street work.
They are designed to offer information for safer sex, as well as anonymous, safe and free testing of antibodies for the virus of HIV and linkage with health care services in case HIV antibodies are detected, whilst providing the necessary psychological support. The main mission of the center is to promote and develop strategies minimizing the risks of HIV transmission via sexual practices through a trustworthy, reliable, informed, non judgmental and interactive counselling session.
