Developed together for the needs of users

s.a.m health was developed as part of an innovation project by ViiV Healthcare and Deutsche Aidshilfe together with existing and previously unreached users and STI testing services.

The combination of user-friendly online ordering and medically trained local care is unique in Germany to date and enables people of legal age to manage their sexual health in a self-determined way while at the same time relieving the burden on public healthcare facilities and doctors’ surgeries.

Together with Münchner Aidshilfe and Labor Lademannbogen, the pilot of s.a.m health (then still S.A.M Mein Heimtest) was successfully launched in Bavaria in 2018 as the first service for home testing for HIV & STI with laboratory analysis and the project was subsequently expanded to nine other federal states. Coordinated by Deutsche Aidshilfe, the regional coverage of counseling services is being continuously expanded by partner checkpoints for s.a.m health. This means that s.a.m health provides valuable access to regular HIV and STI tests, especially in rural areas.
