National HIV Testing Week returns for 2022
posted by: Devon Sexual Health
National HIV Testing Week is back from Monday 7 February with the message ‘Give HIV the finger’.
The week encourages people to have a free, quick and confidential test in the comfort of their own homes – particularly those from groups most affected by HIV, including gay and bisexual men and black African men and women. Self-test kits can be ordered by visiting the following link: https://tinyurl.com/ycktphxj
This is great opportunity to get tested and encourage others to do the same. Regular HIV testing benefits each and every one of us. People can live with HIV for a long time without any symptoms, and testing is the only way to know your status. Most people will get a negative result but whatever happens, it’s important to know that anyone diagnosed with HIV in the UK can access free treatment and support.
Further information is offered via the Eddystone Trust: https://eddystone.org.uk/ or for more details on HIV testing, information and support see; https://www.devonsexualhealth.nhs.uk/stis/hiv/
