If you think you had risk of contracting HIV, you can come to the Linda Clinic for an HIV test. Please call +372 356 9712 or +372 5885 98355 to make appointment. The test takes 5 minutes and the result is shared with you immediately. Before and after the test is performed you will receive information from our nurse on how to prevent HIV. Free condoms are available to anyone visiting the Linda Clinic.

If you are diagnosed with HIV, the Linda Clinic doctor and nurse will support you with starting your treatment (ART). We recommend starting treatment as soon as possible after your diagnosis. You will need to take pills on a daily basis. You will also need medical checks at least twice a year, to analyze if the treatment is working properly. Besides, they will also check if you have other conditions (co-infections and co-morbidities) for which you might need to be treated. During the appointments you will discuss your general health and you will get plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Our social worker can assist you with applying for disability pension, job support, and will provide full information about the specifics of living with HIV: recommendations on diet, work, leisure and sports; safer sex, family planning and conceiving a child. Our social worker is also available for counseling sessions via phone.

Our work does not end at the front door; a team of outreach workers is always on the move in and around Narva, offering free testing in public places, and visiting clients at home, in shelters or rehab centers, to make sure they receive their therapy and support. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to know where we are.

The Linda Clinic works with a team of dedicated volunteers. There are numerous ways in which volunteers support the work of the clinic, and at the same time use their own skills, knowledge and passions. Would you like to distribute condoms and information about the Linda Clinic during public events? Or are you more a creative person, and are you good at taking photos or making short videos? Do you have other good ideas to share with us? Contact us.


About StArt Club

StART Club is a platform for informal meetings and communication of people living with HIV and their environment, with specialists and medical workers.

The goal of the StART Club is to create and support a consistently high level of adherence to ART and adaptation to life with HIV.

The format of the meetings is self-support groups with the participation of specialists: doctors, psychologists, managers. StART Club is intended for patients who are at risk of discontinuing treatment, as well as for PLHIV who are willing to share their life stories with HIV.

Group meetings are moderated by an AHF employee, Linda Clinic’s social worker.

Club meetings are held regularly (1-3 times a month), the moderator is responsible for their organization and conduct. The club meeting lasts 1.5-3 hours.

To create comfortable conditions and reduce the degree of stigma, meetings of START Club are supported in the online space, and meetings will be held for live communication.
