Free, Confidential STD Clinics in Switzerland. Are there any? Where are they?

Hey everyone

I'm wondering if anyone know if there there are any Free (or not), Confidential STD Clinics in Switzerland that I could just walk in and visit. I'd like to be able to get tested.

Thanks

By giving blood you will be throughly screened for free.

i agree, but unfortunately not everyone can give blood even if they can/want to c.f. CJD scares and UK/IE residents between certain dates.

That is a really crappy idea, because there is a delay between infection and positive test, therefore an infected blood might be accepted and given to an innocent receiver.

Please do not use a blood donation as a way to get an HIV / STD test.

You will complete forms beforehand and if you are in anyway a risky donor, they won't take your blood. All blood is fully screened these days.

Obviously, if you suspect you are carrying something then it is a stupid idea. Most people just want to know they are fine and could end up saving someone's life through giving blood.

Re: Free, Confidential STD Clinics in Switzerland. Are there any? Where are they?

Having just had a full STI screen through a doctor and private lab (all clear thankfully) I have just received bills for over CHF 1,100.

For future reference, (hopefully not required!) is there a cheaper way of getting screened for STI's in Zurich? I tried the links on this page before going but couldn't find any.

Thanks

WOW, you chose to pay through insurance I assume?

The cash first method cost me 60chf last time out. Someone is making a killing.

Well, at least you are all clear.

When I saw that this thread had been bumped, my first thought was that Zurich156 had had mixed success.
