HIV and AIDS; information, prevention and counseling

The health offices, AIDS counseling centers and AIDS help centers provide information and advice on infection risks, preventive measures and HIV antibody tests.


For AIDS patients and people infected with HIV, as well as for their relatives, partners and all persons who have questions or problems because of the infection or immunodeficiency, 10 psychosocial AIDS counseling centers and the AIDS help centers are available for information about HIV in addition to the 76 state and municipal health offices. With at least one psychosocial AIDS counseling center in each administrative district, Bavaria has thus established a nationwide education and counseling service.

The counseling centers, public health offices and AIDS assistance centers provide counseling by telephone and in person and hold educational events about HIV/AIDS. In addition, the health offices offer free, anonymous HIV antibody tests.

Extensive material on HIV and AIDS is available from the Bavarian Center for Prevention and Health Promotion at the State Office for Health and Food Safety. More information can be requested at
