Where to find HIV anonymous test in Taiwan?
The Taiwanese government pays great attention to human’s health, if you are high at risk, they all recommend that the doctor will immediately consult you for prompt advice and perhaps treatment. Moreover, Taiwan’s health insurance is classified as one of the best insurance types in the world. This is also the country with the highest number of foreign workers in the region.
Besides that, as one of the countries really open to the LGBT community, Taiwan is considered an ideal destination for adventurers. There are many places for LGBT communities like bars, sauna, clubs or events. Being comfortable in sexual issues creates a very high risk in the problem of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, gonorrhea, syphilis, …
Many places for who is for high-risk people to be counseled and tested of these diseases, especially these are not on your hometown, language barriers, travel problems are also problematic, I don’t know if it is a reliable and safe address for advice and testing.
