What is Checkpoint Göteborg?

Checkpoint Göteborg is a community-based testing site for men who have sex with men and transgender people. We offer HIV and syphilis testing, anonymously and free of charge. If you belong to the target group, you can get support from the Checkpoint Göteborg counsellor if you want to talk about drugs and sex.


At Checkpoint Göteborg, you can take an HIV test easily and get your result fast. It is free of charge, and you can remain completely anonymous. The test is done independently of the formal health care services. We now also offer syphilis testing with fast results.

The testing site is open every Tuesday evening. You do not need to register in advance, just come by. We are located at RFSL’s offices in central Gothenburg. 

Once inside the testing room, there will be time to talk. We will do a finger prick and you will get your result afterwards.


If you want to talk about how you feel about drugs and sex, chemsex, experience of sexual risks or sex work, you can talk to a Checkpoint Göteborg counsellor. Your questions and thoughts are our starting point. Checkpoint’s counsellor is available for gay and bisexual men, men who have sex with men and/or transgender people.

The people you will meet here are trained social workers and have specialised knowledge about drugs, sex work, sex and safer sex. You can remain anonymous, and we do not keep any records.
