The Ministry of Health of São Paulo organized free tests for HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B and C during the 3rd International Meeting of Body Piercing and Tattoo artists from Brazil.

The event, held in the Yellow Pavilion of Expo Center Norte, was closed on Sunday (21).

The goal was to reach 150 people in each of the three days of the meeting, a total of 1,800 tests. The action has 60 professionals including nurses, biologists, psychologists, social workers and technicians of the Centre for Reference and Training in HIV / AIDS. The tests are simple, quick and painless and performed with privacy and confidentiality. The results of the four tests are ready in about half an hour after collection.

For the assistant coordinator of the State Program STD / AIDS-SP, Artur Kalichman, the action also serves to disseminate information on prevention.

HIV, syphilis and hepatitis can be transmitted by the equipment and accessories used for tattooing and body piercing, which must be perfectly cleaned. In addition, adequate disinfection of the premises and also the professional is critical to everyone's safety, says Kalichman.
