The prevention programmes

Aids-Hilfe Schweiz 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 splits. Is that bad? How will I realize I have AIDS? Is a small wound on a finger dangerous if I am fingering a woman?

Facts and figures about HIV/Aids

Variable spread of HIV in the population

In Switzerland the spread of HIV/Aids in the general population is relatively low: less than 0.1% of the population carry the virus. However, the virus is much more widely spread in some groups. This applies particularly to men who have sex with men, to migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa and intravenous drug users: in these groups 5% or more are infected with HIV.
