Testing is good for YOU

The sooner you find out you have HIV, the better it is for your health. If you have HIV for a long time without knowing, it can damage your health and shorten your life. It’s a good idea to test at least once a year (or more if you have unprotected sex with more than one partner).

Testing is good for ALL OF US

Most people get HIV from someone who doesn’t know they have it – the only way to be sure is to get tested.

Anyone can be passed the HIV virus, but there are situations where you can be more at risk.

You can be at risk if you:

  • have had unprotected sex
  • have had casual sex (unprotected)
  • have shared needles to inject drugs or steroids
