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.


It’s not easy, especially for close relatives, children, or parents of transgender people to come to terms with coming out, or with transition.


Relatives are very welcome with their questions and needs at the specialist departments.

There is also a regular group meeting for relatives to interexchange.
