Safer Sex

Safer sex is the best way to protect yourself and your partners against HIV or sexually transmitted infections. Therefore:

  1. Use a condom for vaginal and anal sex. 
  2. For recommendations based on your personal sexuality, try our a Safer Sex Check.


Securion hilft dir, das HIV-Risiko zu meistern.


Securion aims to encourage all men who have sex with men (MSM) to avoid taking any HIV-risks at all for at least the full month of October, and then go for a HIV-test for only 10 francs at selected testing centres in November. Securion is also designed to raise awareness of new protection options. The greatest risk of contracting HIV is in unprotected anal sex with a partner whose HIV status is unclear or unknown.

#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.

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?
