Life in Korea: getting an AIDS test free and anonymously
Author's note: Life in Korea posts are aimed at the newer expats amongst us - if you have a more experienced perspective to offer, feel free to comment away.
After the recent Rubber Seoul event, I thought I'd share a little public service announcement. An AIDS test is something that should be on your list if you're sexually active. The Korea Federation for HIV/AIDS Prevention (KHAP) offers free and anonymous testing in Seoul and Ansan twice a month, once at each location. Beyond the free condoms you can pick up there, it's important. For more information or make a reservation, check out www.khap.org.
Head to the Ansan center every 1st Sunday or the Seoul center every 3rd Sunday. You need a reservation; call 02-927-4323 for the Seoul center or 031-495-0560 for the Ansan center.
Directions to the Seoul center: take line 4 of the Seoul subway system to the Gireum station. Take exit 7 to street level, then go straight through the intersection and look look just past the SK gas station.
Get it done - then hit up the clubs knowing you're safe.
