The CAD VIH/SIDA Porto (Centro de Aconselhamento e Deteção Precoce do VIH/SIDA do Porto), provided already the free screening sessions for the month of May.

The HIV/AIDS Mobile Unit screening actions are organised by the Counselling Centre for the earlier HIV/AIDS diagnosis, and it features monthly free planning regarding HIV/AIDS screening actions, in various locations in Porto. There is no need for previous registration. See here the dates, times and locations for May.

However, the stationary unit requires previous appointment, via the phone numbers 220 412 250, 961 314 380, or via the email The operating hours at the stationary unit are from Monday to Friday, between 10 am and 5 pm. This service is temporarily located at the Rua da Constituição, n. 199.

The CAD VIH/SIDA Porto is held under the action plan of the Municipality of Porto themed "Porto, Cidade Sem Sida" ["Porto, City without Aids", free translation], and the outline goal is the provision of suitable answers to local needs, in order to meet the strategy 90-90-90 goals set by the Municipality in May 2019. This means that 90% of the people living with AIDS know that they are infected, 90% of the people who are infected receive treatment and 90% of the people being treated have the infection under control.
