Why test for HIV?
There are many good reasons to be tested for HIV and other STIs:

  • If you have had unprotected sex. If you’re sexually active, it’s good to get into the routine of testing regularly for HIV and other STIs, even if you regularly use condoms and don’t think you have been at risk.
  • Been diagnosed with another STI
  • Shared injecting equipment

Testing is the only way to know if you have HIV. Knowing your HIV status means you can keep yourself healthy especially now that the virus can be well controlled if diagnosed early. It will also reduce the risk of onward infection. It’s good to know your HIV status!
