Why should I get a test?

  • Not everyone gets symptoms so you might have HIV and not know

  • People who start treatment early can expect to live a long, healthy life 

  • People who are on effective treatment can't pass on the virus

  • It's free, quick and confidential


What does the test involve?

The test is a quick fingerprick test and will give you your results in 20 minutes. See our video below for a quick demonstration of what to expect when you come for a HIV fingerprick test.
