HSH Princess Stéphanie visited the COVID-19 screening centre in the Espace Léo Ferré yesterday afternoon. Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Social Affairs and Health, welcomed her at the centre.

The two antibody screening centres set up in Monaco have so far greeted thousands of the Principality’s residents, and the Princely Family has been no exception. After Prince Albert II of Monaco visited the centre some days ago, yesterday it was the turn of younger sister Princess Stéphanie.

She greeted the volunteers, particularly the members of the association Fight Aids Monaco who had come to lend a hand in performing the tests on the Monegasque population.

Princess Stéphanie of Monaco presides over the charity Fight Aids Monaco, created in 2004, which hopes to provide a safe space where every person living with HIV can express themselves freely, to talk about this virus and its consequences.
