“Get tested for free against viral hepatitis.” Screenings are carried out the 28th July on the forecourt of Luxembourg Station from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the DIMPS van.
World Hepatitis Day is a reminder of the existence of silent viral infections, which, if left untreated, can lead to cirrhosis of the liver.
Prevention, Testing and Treatment
The HIV Berodung (HIV counselling) service of the Luxembourg Red Cross is about promoting prevention of infectious diseases – from HIV, hepatitis C and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) – and promoting a living environment that meets the needs of those concerned. Founded in 1988 to support people with AIDS, the service is currently a national public health stakeholder in the prevention of HIV, hepatitis C and other STIs, as well as psychosocial care.
The service offers a telephone hotline and personalised interviews on safer sex, safer use or on specific risky situations experienced by the caller. Tailor-made prevention sessions are also organised upon request for high schools, youth centres or for other audiences, along with training sessions for the staff of organisations working in the social, medical or educational fields.
The participatory Roundabout AIDS course is organised three times a year in high schools. Finally, we hold information and awareness-raising campaigns and events to remind the entire population that these issues remain topical.
