HIV Self Test - Positive East
According to the Public Health England 2014 report on HIV, there are an estimated 26,000 people in the UK who are not aware they have HIV and they are unknowingly responsible for the majority of onward transmissions. It is really important to know your HIV status, especially if you think you have had a potential risk of exposure to the virus but you can only be certain of this if you have an HIV test.
HIV is preventable and you can choose to reduce or even eliminate your risk. Early diagnosis is critical, as the sooner treatment can be started the better the outcomes. Treatments are now so advanced that in the UK, with correct treatment at the correct time, you can live an active and healthy life and have a normal life expectancy.
