Let’s Talk About HIV Testing


 

National HIV Testing Day will be observed on June 27, 2019, but, how many persons know, understand and practice steps outlined to safeguard against contracting or spreading the HIV virus and therefore making HIV testing increasingly important.

HIV testing shows whether a person has HIV. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection.

HIV testing can detect HIV infection, but it can’t tell how long a person has had HIV or if the person has AIDS. Knowing your HIV status can help keep you—and others—safe.

It is recommended that everyone 13 to 64 years old gets tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. As a general rule, people at higher risk for HIV should get tested each year, such as every 3 to 6 months. All pregnant women should get tested for HIV so that they can begin taking HIV medicines if they are HIV positive. Women with HIV take HIV medicines during pregnancy and childbirth to reduce the risk of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and to protect their own health.

Take note of the list of HIV Testing Locations across the island, the only way to know for sure whether you have HIV is to get tested.

Some factors that increase the risk of HIV include:

  • Having vaginal or anal sex with someone whose status you don’t know or someone who is HIV positive.
  • The use of drugs- injecting drugs and sharing needles, syringes or other drug equipment.
  • Exchange sex for money or drugs
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) such as syphilis
  • Having sex with anyone who has any of the risk factors listed above.

Talk to your health care provider about your risk for HIV and how often you should get tested for HIV. If you are HIV negative it means that testing shows that you don’t have HIV and should continue taking steps to avoid getting HIV, such as using condoms during sex. If testing shows that you have HIV, remember you can still take steps to protect your health. Begin by talking to your health care provider about antiretroviral therapy (ART).

Your health…is your responsibility!
