Safer sex

Safer sex today is no longer ‘just’ about avoiding HIV: it’s also about protecting yourself from other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), hepatitis B and hepatitis C. There are a wide range of protection and testing strategies available to you here, and which ones are best for you will depend on your individual situation and the context of your sexual encounters.

That’s why the LOVE LIFE campaign urges everyone above all: do your Safer Sex Check.

The Safer Sex Check provides personal recommendations on how to protect yourself and when to get yourself tested that are based on the applicable risks. In addition to the Check, the website also offers invaluable further information on risks, protection and testing, along with the addresses of testing and counselling centres.
