You don’t need to give us any personal information. All results are specially encrypted and all of our employees are bound with professional confidentiality agreements.

When am I most likely to get infected?
  1. During sexual activity - Whenever you have sex without using a condom, including vaginal (passive at more risk), anal (passive at more risk), and/or oral (active at more risk).
  2. During needle or syringe use - Taking drugs using needles or syringes you share with other people.
If you think HIV is not your problem…

If you have ever had unprotected sexual contact with someone who doesn’t know their serological status (i.e. never had an HIV test) – you should get tested!

Here you can also get quick tests for HCV and syphilis.

What‘s the testing procedure like?

  1. Before the test. Before taking the test you will need to talk with an HIV counsellor. They will ask you some questions to get an overall view of your individual situation. The talk is professional, confidential, and you won’t be judged. Our team members are professional, certified HIV/AIDS counsellors, who can help with any questions you have about HIV and AIDS. They also have the training to answer STD related questions; advise you on the meaning of your test result, and about risky behaviour and ways to minimise it.
  2. Performing the test. After the counsellor talks with you they will decide which test is most suitable for you, than you will see a nurse who will take blood from your finger (quick) or vein (standard) depending on your individual situation.
  3. Collecting the test results. If you had the quick test, you can collect your test results after 30 minutes from the same counsellor that you spoke to before your test; but if you had the standard test you will need to pick them up the next day. In both cases, while you’re discussing the results is the best moment for asking additional questions.

Types of test suitable for you

  1. Standard test
    1. Uses a blood sample from your vein
    2. 4th generation test
    3. Checks for p24 proteins and HIV antibodies
    4. Can detect infection after only 3 weeks from the risky situation
    5. Reliable negative result after 12 weeks
    6. You can pick up the test results the next day
  2. Quick test
    1. Uses finger-prick blood test
    2. 3rd generation test
    3. Only checks for HIV antibodies
    4. Reliable result (positive or negative) after 12 weeks from the risky situation
    5. Not recommended for pregnant women (might give a false positive)
    6. You can pick up the test result after 30 minutes

When should I get an HIV test

  • If you’re in a relationship (or were in one) with a partner who was previously sexually active but has never been tested for HIV.
  • If you have taken up sexual contact with random people, without using protection (condoms).
  • If you are taking drugs using shared needles or syringes.

Although the HIV test can be done free of charge and anonymously throughout Poland, most of us have never been tested...

In Poland, such a study was performed by less than 10% of adults, in this respect we occupy the last, "disgraceful" place in the European Union. What's worse, it is estimated that every second infected person does not know about his infection. Project Test is a social campaign that decided to change the way of thinking about HIV in Poland. Together with our ambassadors, we disenchant HIV! Thanks to extensive activities in the public space and social media, he explains that you no longer have to be afraid of a positive HIV test result. Today, thanks to the progress of medicine, it is a chronic disease that can be treated.

Our campaign shows that HIV can affect each of us, regardless of gender, age, orientation or lifestyle, so everyone should be tested. Well-known Poles have been involved in our project for years, who, together with experts, convince that it is worth taking an HIV test.

How did it start?
While still a student, Agata persuaded her friends to support her in the crazy idea of an action encouraging people to test themselves for HIV. It was they who agreed to encourage Poles to get tested for HIV with their faces. It was the first optimistic HIV campaign. Young people showed that such an examination is something completely ordinary, natural and lasts as long as the proverbial 'drinking coffee in the city'. Dozens of wise, young and conscious people made their faces public to show that taking an HIV test is something natural, obvious and indisputable for them. The photos were accompanied by words that reminded them of testing m. "easy", "fast", "safe", "safe", "together", "for you", "for me", "after erasmus" and many others.

To this day, the campaign refutes the "I don't care" stereotype and shows that getting tested for HIV is a matter of course.
