I had unprotected sex during my holiday.

Safer Sex

Protect yourself effectively against HIV with three simple rules.

  1. Sleeping together – always use a condom (or femidom).
  2. Do not get any sperm or menstrual blood in your mouth, do not swallow sperm or blood.
  3. Consult your doctor immediately if you experience itching, discharge or pain in the genital area, or flu-like symptoms following unprotected sex.


#undetectable: HIV-positiv und nicht ansteckend?

HIV-positive and no longer infectious?

People with HIV are no longer infectious if they follow their therapy as prescribed, and their viral load is below the detectable threshold. This means that they can have unprotected sex, without worrying that they will infect their partner. HIV drugs do not protect against infection with other sexually transmitted diseases, however.

#undetectable: HIV-positive and no longer infectious?


GET TESTED is a campaign run by Aids Help Switzerland. Its aim is to encourage men and women to know their own HIV status, while also breaking down prejudice and fear of discrimination.
GET TESTED is specifically designed for members of African communities in Switzerland.

Discriminated against?

Discriminated against? Let us know

Is your dentist refusing to treat you because you're HIV-positive? Is someone you know telling everyone that you're HIV-positive? You don't have to put up with it. Let the Swiss AIDS Federation know if you have experienced injustice, or if someone you know who is HIV-positive has suffered discrimination.

Don't stay silent – tell us what has happened

The prevention programmes

The Swiss AIDS Federation focuses its prevention activities on target group-specific measures for men who have sex with men, migrants and male and female sex workers.



“Should I get tested after unprotected sex?”

The condom split. Is that bad? How will I realize I have AIDS? Is a small wound on a finger dangerous if I am fingering a woman?
