If you work in the sex industry

Are you a man, woman or transgender who earns money or goods in exchange for sex? Then you are welcome to visit the Public Health Service. You can contact us for an appointment about:

  • a free, anonymous STD test and HIV test, and for treatment of an STD;
  • free hepatitis B vaccination;
  • all your sex-related questions.

If you work in the sex industry, we advise that you undergo a periodical STD check-up twice a year. Do you have symptoms, have you been warned about an STD or did a condom slip off or get damaged during your work in the sex industry? If so, you should contact us, even if you already had two periodical STD check-ups this year.

What does the Public Health Service do for sex workers?

Public Health Service has a prostitution team especially for women, men and transgenders who work in the sex industry. This team is made up of social nurses and doctors.

The prostitution team visits clubs four times a year and erotic massage salons twice a year: sex workers are offered free, anonymous STD tests and hepatitis B vaccinations. The prostitution team is also active on internet sites, such as kinky, speurders, sexjobs, etc.
