Community health centre

A Checkpoint is a health centre for gay and other men who have sex with men (MSM). The Checkpoints Vaud and Zürich also counsel transgender people and their partners.


Checkpoint isn’t only a walk-in centre for having tests and treatments; but also a place where you can come to talk about difficulties in your day to day life. A team is there to listen to you and to support you in finding back to yourself and to help you go your own way.

Appointments can be made, to confront problems in connection with sexual orientation, love and sexual relationships between men or sexual and transgender identity.

Regardless of whether you are a father or mother, whether you have questions about puberty or you’re concerned about a new stage in life, if you’re worried about your love life or sex life; the Checkpoint team is there to listen to you and support you.

We listen, inform and support, on subjects such as:

  • Coming out
  • Love and relationships
  • Couples in a relationship
  • Sexuality
  • Discrimination and violence
  • Risks and addiction
  • HIV and STI prevention
  • HIV positivity
  • Questions about life in general


Various services are available through Checkpoint and/or its’ partners :
