• Communicate changes in the volunteer assignment, etc.
• Record keeping according to the Health and Medical Care Act.

The test reception’s online booking for HIV tests

If you do not agree to the described handling of names and mobile numbers, you are welcome to make a drop-in visit during the test reception’s opening hours, Mondays at 5.00 pm – 8.00 pm.
