Let’s talk and Test


‘Let’s talk and test’ aims to bring testing directly to the high-risk population, giving people the chance to get tested in a casual and safe environment.

In the short-term, the project aims to raise awareness of testing, increase the number of people getting tested and thus being diagnosed with HIV, as well as driving conversation and open-mindedness around STI and HIV testing.

In the long-term, a key aim is to establish the ‘Let’s talk & test’ format as a staple, informative and non-judgemental prevention event in Germany, leading to further positive impact along the Gardner Cascade.
