As you are a sexworker, you expose yourself to a whole range of risks such as sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. It's Boysproject's aim to minimise these risks.
That's why we advice you:
-Start with an overall STD/hiv test; then regularly every 6 months.
This free, anonymous testing we offer you in collaboration with Ghapro.
You decide what happens during the examination.
This medical examination may include the following:
-A blood sample to check for hepatitis B, HIV and syphilis
-A urine sample to check for chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
-If the blood sample shows that you are not protected against hepatitis B we can give you a vaccination for free (three vaccines).
-If the sample shows that you are infected with hepatitis A we can give you a vaccination for free (2 vaccines).
-If you've had unsafe sexual contact: take a test immediately. You can visit GHAPRO, the HELP CENTER ITG, the emergency department of ZNA STUIVENBERG or your family doctor.
-If you've had a serious risk of a HIV-infection: go to ITG within 72 hours for a possible PEP treatment !
You can have an HIV-oral fluid test (SWAB2KNOW) at Boysproject. The result you receive about a week later. Make an appointment or visit the drop in.
You can also do an HIV-test yourselve. These can be bought without a prescription at a pharmacy.
